One still sought for questioning in Cumberland shootout

Posted May 12, 2011

— Cumberland County investigators were searching Thursday for one man wanted for questioning in a shootout that killed two men Sunday.

Investigators said that gunfire erupted in a mobile home at 3921 Donna St. around 4:20 a.m. last Sunday, killing Rodriguez Odell Harris, 23, and Terrell Boykin, 19, both of Fayetteville.

Homicide detectives have identified Emmanuel "Bucky" Patterson, 19, who is homeless, as a person of interest in the case.

Detectives spoke on Wednesday with four other men also identified as people of interest in the shooting. That means they are not suspects but authorities believe they know information that would help investigators.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at 910-323-1500.

    What a shame... While I was a chaplain at UNC, I sat with Mr. Harris' mom for hours on end when he was in the NSICU and REHAB with a gunshot wound to the head. The doctors didn't think he would make it but we felt different. Now this....What a messed up life this guy must of had.....
