Fayetteville, N.C. — Kourtney Terrell Reed, one of three men wanted in connection with the Sept. 1 shooting death of 27-year-old Errol Williams near a Fayetteville convenience store, was captured Wednesday morning in St. Pauls, police said.
Fayetteville Police Chief Harold Medlock said in a news conference that Reed, 20, was captured in a home by members of a U.S. Marshals Service task force. Medlock said Reed was trying to hide from police in an attic when he fell through the ceiling at about 9:30 a.m.
Reed is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree kidnapping and robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was being transported to Fayetteville Thursday afternoon to be interviewed about Williams' murder.
According to investigators, Williams has stopped at a Kangaroo station on Bragg Boulevard to ask for directions when he was forced into his car and shot a few blocks away.
Medlock said Thursday that investigators are still searching for Kelly Eugene Elliott, 31, and Joseph DeShawn Haskins, 21, also wanted on charges of first-degree murder, first-degree kidnapping and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Haskins, whose last known address was on Spellman Drive in Fayetteville, also faces a conspiracy charge.
Elliott, whose last known address was on Dominion Road in Fayetteville, has served time for assault, robbery, vehicle theft and drugs.
"That investigation into his whereabouts is as active and assertive as it has been for the last week," Medlock said.
