Cary Police Seek Help Locating Alleged Bank of America Shooter

Posted August 3, 2007

— Following weeks of investigation and the arrests of two suspects linked to the Bank of America shooting on June 17, Cary Police officials said they have identified the shooter.

Now, they are trying to locate the suspect.

Police said they believe the shooter was Phillip Thomas “Scoob” Williams, 34, of 3308 Rehoveth Church Road, Apt. R, Greensboro. His prior address was 1253 MacArthur Drive, Camden, NJ.

Williams is wanted for attempted murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

On June 17, Williams allegedly shot a 51-year-old Cary woman who was making a deposit at the Bank of America ATM, 801 SE Maynard Road .

The suspect then ran across Maynard Road to Cary Towne Center mall where he jumped into a red sedan with New York tags being driven by a male, according to police. The team then fled the scene.

On July 12, with the aid of the Cary Police Department, U.S. Marshals Service located and arrested Terrance Adam Lyles, 31, and Travis Monique Price, 24, both of 5400 Portree Place, Raleigh, for robbery with a dangerous weapon and accessory after the fact to robbery with a dangerous weapon, respectively.

The two were arrested in Philadelphia, and they were brought to North Carolina on August 1, police said. The two have been held in the Wake County Public Safety Center on a $250,000 bond each since their return.

If convicted of all charges, Williams could face a maximum sentence of life in prison, officials said. Lyles could face a penalty of 38 to 183 months in prison and Price could face 10 to 49 months in prison.

The woman who was shot is out of the hospital and doing well, officials said. Police said they are continuing to protect her identity out of concerns for her safety.

    I agree with ncguy!!!!!! It would solve so many problems but the way the united states works after they took a limb from the person they would give the person foodstamps and disability.

    Let's take a ride to china and see how they handle criminals.
    Murders- death and their family is shunned for generations.
    Theives- amputation of a limb most often.
    Major offense- 5-10 Hard labor in the feilds.
    Minor offense- 1-2 hard labor
    I don't know the number of murders but I think they have the same as us with 10x the population.

    Doing time in the USA is too much a cake walk!!!!

    Black Tie is a trash hole full of thug activity and dangerous people. Just because drug violations is not violent in itself, it promotes violent activity. Sorry if I'm not being "politically correct" but it's time that people start seeing the TRUTH and not get so offended. There is no was you can compare this dump to a bank. Do we need to close Virginia Tech because of how many people got shot there. That is the argument you are making. I hate to also point this out, but race does come into play because it involves a culture. I'm not pointing out any specific race because each one has it's problems, but if you fail to see what I'm talking about, just go look at crime statistics and it's connection to ones race.

    Black, white, yellow or extraterrestrial green any animal that commits a crime like this should automatically "ONCE CONVICTED" not pass go, not collect $200, but be put to death. Turn out the lights sorry Charlie but like the theme song to Baraetta 'You do the crime, you do the time' or in a case like this - you get executed. Every day brings another senseless story of violence on here. The heck with prison. It is way past the time of coddling these animals. They commit attempted murder or murder and are found guilty. Execute them. I don’t care if they commit it with a gun, a knife or a car. You try to murder someone or actually murder them; there is no excuse why that person should not be executed. None! Innocent people all over the country are being killed everyday and until the law abiding citizens stand up and say enough is enough and it becomes fact there is the one and only one type of punishment you will get for this crime, it will not stop!

    I wish I would have saved your eyes the trouble of reading the majority of those posts which were truly garbage, for lack of a better word.

    OK, I just read some of the Black Ties comments and there's definitely some passive-aggressive racist comments on there. I didn't even want to finish reading them all.
