Posted December 16, 2002

— The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office arrested four suspects, including two teenagers, early Sunday morning in the murder of 29-year-old Reginald Devon Miles at the Coliseum Inn.

According to the crime report, Miles died at the scene of multiple gunshot wounds Saturday afternoon.

Deputies say the motive for the murder appears to have been a dispute between the victim and suspect Henry Luther Brown over Brown's girlfriend, Khateefa Maxine McDaniel.

The 23-year-old Brown, the 18-year-old McDaniel and two other suspects were arrested around 3:30 a.m. Sunday. They were being held without bond in the Cumberland County jail on Sunday afternoon, all of them charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, first-degree murder and felony conspiracy.

The other two suspects have been identified as 20-year-old Christopher Jason Scott of Spring Lake, N.C., and 17-year-old Sharesa Antoinette Breece of Fayetteville.

Brown and McDaniel have Fayetteville addresses.

The suspects will make their first appearance in District Court on Monday.

In addition to the murder, deputies said an undetermined amount of cash, a cellular telephone and Miles' Jeep were stolen from Miles after the shooting.

According to the crime report, the sheriff's office received a 911 call from the Coliseum Inn, located on Highway 301, at approximately 6:25 p.m. Saturday. The caller said a shooting had occurred in room 171.

When deputies entered the room, they discovered Miles' body.
