Admitted gang member sought by Fayetteville police

Posted November 9, 2010

Fayetteville police are asking for the public’s help in finding a known gang member wanted on several charges, including attempted murder.

Police say Travion Dominique McQuirter is an admitted gang member who often spends time around the Bunce Road area of Fayetteville.

He is also wanted on charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with intent to kill and conspiracy.

He has a tattoo on his forearm that reads “Precious Gift of God;” another on his forearm that says “Tray;” and one on his neck that reads “Gladys.”

He has been arrested several times since 2007 on various charges, including larceny, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and simple assault.

Anyone with information about where he might be is asked to contact Fayetteville police at 910-433-1856 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-TIPS.

All Crime Stoppers calls are confidential, and callers can receive up to $1,000 in reward money for information that leads to an arrest.

The police department’s request is part of a new initiative called FPD Bluelight Special to capture repeat offenders wanted for various crimes.

To date, the police department says, every suspect featured in the program has been captured within two weeks – with the fastest capture happening less than 24 hours after information being published.

    "Precious" is the name of his 3 or 4 niece that he was with when she was abducted and murdered by a neighbor. He had to testify. Google it. That would be enough to mess you up pretty badly. He was a great kid and I loved being his teacher. I am praying that he turns his life around and becomes the young man God intended him to be.

    "The police should look for him at school or his place of employment." ccs1920

    Now that is funny. Good one.

    Fatchanceimwrong, I place the blame for the reason why people don't remained locked up on voters. If you don't go and vote for judges who have a hardline stance on criminals, and also for politicians who have the hootzpa (however spelled, at least phonetically correct) to pass stricter sentencing and allow for the enforcement of current common-sense laws, then this whole "no one stays locked up" trend will continue.

    @ginasbo-how does one's mother "allow" this type of lifestyle?

    @wildcat-you are so right. There is a time in life when, despite what children are taught, peers' influences may sometimes be stronger than parents/family/church, etc.

    At 14, my son spent the night with a friend. I took him to the friend's house, spoke with the mother, etc. Around 11 pm, I get a phone call from the police department. He & his friend snuck out of house while friend's mom was asleep and got in some trouble. I go to retrieve him from the police station, he says "take me to juvie because if I go home with her, not only will she spank me, but she is going to ground me forever." I told them to take him and keep him as long as legally possible. I did not visit, I accepted no collect calls, nothing.

    Parents don't always "allow" children to get in trouble.

    Before the question is asked "where is his father?". I am a widower.

    The police should look for him at school or his place of employment.

    if he even knows his mother. Leftwing

    He knows his mother. She is not proud of his life style.

    Well, I bet when he shoots at the PoPo and gets killed then she'll be sitting one her front porch crying and holding a picture of him when he was 15 and telling everybody that "he ain't never done anything to anybody and the police shot him like a dog".

    wildcat - I do agree with you. I've seen many kids who grew up in the church with loving parents and they make the wrong choice and ruin their lives. Don't need to be asking where his mother is. Probably need to be asking where his daddy was? (when he was growing up)
