A man wanted in a June 1 murder in the Weldon area was apprehended in Prince George’s County, Maryland, according to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.

Chief Deputy Scott Hall said in a statement released Friday night Rashon Demetric Jordan was arrested without trouble Wednesday and was returned to Halifax County. He is in the Halifax County Detention Center and is being held without opportunity for bond.

No first court appearance date was immediately available.

With the arrest of Jordan four people have now been charged in the shooting death of Larry Williams Jr.

Two people have been charged with accessory after the fact of murder and Jordan and Dashawn Oneil Moore face murder charges.

The sheriff’s office reported earlier this month Jordan was believed to have been outside the area but maintained close ties to the others who have been arrested.

The sheriff’s office has said robbery appears to be the motive.

When deputies arrived on a shooting call in the Cypress Court area they found Williams had been shot and was deceased at the scene.

Several shots were fired at the location. 

It was reported that the suspects drove up on a vehicle, but after the shooting they fled on foot. 

In processing evidence from the scene the identity of the shooters was identified. 

Hall said in the Friday night statement the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation Fugitive and Missing Persons Task Force along with Charlotte and Maryland agents of the FBI Fugitive Task Force assisted in locating Jordan.
