Two men wanted in a March drive-by shooting in which one man died surrendered Monday.

Enfield police Chief Tyree Davis said Montreal Rayshum Williams surrendered to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.

Jerrel Rayshawn Jones surrendered to Enfield Detective Willie Murphy Jr. at the Halifax County Magistrate’s Office accompanied by family.

Both men are being held without opportunity for bond. They face charges of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, felony discharge a firearm as a part of street gang activity, and felony conspiracy.

Davis and Murphy were not immediately available for comment this morning.

The victim in the murder, Wendell Sanders Jr., had no gang ties, Murphy said Monday.

He said, however, the men were allegedly targeting a rival gang member at the time of the shooting on Bell Street when Sanders was shot and killed in the crossfire.

Two other victims were struck in the 9 p.m. shooting, one of them the rival gang member and the other a person who had no gang ties, Murphy confirmed.

The detective declined to name the gang member who was struck.
