Police Still Looking for 2 in Rocky Mount Drive-By

Posted June 5, 1997

— Nine pieces of a murder puzzle appear to have come together, but police believe there are still two pieces missing.

seven suspects have been arrested in connection with the drive-by shooting of a 4-year-old girl. Police are still hunting for Dexter Pitt and Torrey Lyons whom officers believe had a hand in the shooting.

Brittany Johnson was asleep at home this past weekend when a stray bullet punched through her bedroom wall killing her.

Lt. Wayne Sears of the Rocky Mount Police Department says finding the two remaining suspects is a high priority.

Investigators say tips from neighbors helped to bring about several of the seven arrests already made.
