Fayetteville police arrest one, seek another in Quick Stop shooting

Posted December 14, 2012

— Fayetteville police have one man in custody and have identified a second suspect in a Nov. 27 convenience store shooting that left two store employees injured.

They arrested Tyrone Lamont Dobbins, 29, of the 100 block of Treetop Lane, on charges of attempted first-degree murder, assault with a dangerous weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy, possession of a firearm by a felon and some drug charges. 

Police say they suspect that Martino Anthony Jones, 27, was the second shooter inside the Quick Stop Tobacco Shop, at 502 Grove St. that night. Jones' last known address was in the 2600 block of Gainey Road, and he is 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 165 pounds and has two tattoos – a dollar sign on his neck and the words "Crime Paid" on his forearm.

Police warn that Jones should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911.

Dobbins was being held Friday at the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $1,160,000 secured bond. 

The two victims of the shooting – Najib Bouzerda, 44, and Mohamed Ould, 41, – were still in the hospital Friday. Both men are expected to recover.

Police have said they believe there may have been two more people in a getaway car outside.

    You're right. I can't fathom their complete disregard for life.

    And in Western NC, all the robbers, killers, drug pushers, thieves and child molesters look just like your typical White Alliance Brotherhood. I guess it's a matter of where you live.

    A dollar sign on his neck and "Crime Paid" tats on his forearm. How appropriate

    They should be charged with a hate crime. "Crime Paid" because prison is a vacation home.

    wow fayettville another one?? hopefully the judge gets him behind bars for 40 or 50 years, there is no human more evil than one that shoots to kill during a robbery.

    It sounds to my like they are unfairly profiling Tyrone. Just because he is a black man, in a hoodie, with a bandana over his face and a gun...

    "Tyrone Lamont Dobbins" well I am sure it is all a big misunderstanding, that he is actually a church going young man, that his momma loves and this will all be cleaned up when the "real" facts come out.
