Wilson Police Make More Arrests In Nightclub Shooting

Posted October 18, 2002

— Wilson police continue to round up suspects from a shootout at a Wilson nightclub two weeks ago.

In the past two days, police arrested three more men.

Lester Richardson and Rashaad Jolly were charged with murder; Marcus Clemmons was charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Last week, Roger Barnes was charged with one count of murder and is in the Wilson County jail without bond.

Police said the suspects went to the Due Drop End on October 5 to murder Antonio Wilkins. Wilkins and Benjamin Moore Junior were killed. Seven others were injured in the shooting.

Five men have been arrested so far, including nightclub owner Percy Bowens. Police said he was arrested for failing to supervise the business.

One more arrest is expected, according to police.

Police shut down the nightclub, calling it a nuisance to the neighborhood.
