Raleigh police make arrest in August homicide

Posted October 9, 2014

Bryce Joccarroll Williams

— A 32-year-old man was charged late Wednesday in connection with an Aug. 20 homicide near downtown Raleigh's Red Hat Amphitheater.

Bryce Joccarroll Williams, of 610 E. Martin St., is charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder. 

According to investigators, Williams shot Ramon Antonio Shaw, 23, and Joshua Jamar Vines, 30, at about 5 a.m. Shaw was pronounced dead the scene, and Vines was taken to WakeMed for the treatment of gunshot wounds.

Vines was later charged with drug trafficking after investigators found heroin and crack cocaine hidden in a hotel room he had checked into a day before the shooting.

It's unclear if the drug charges had anything to do with Joshua Vines' shooting.

Williams was being held without bond early Thursday in the Wake County jail.

    Another fine NC citizen who will be burden to taxpayers the rest of his days.

    If guilty he should walk "The Green Mile" as soon as possible.

    Wait! You mean cops catch bad guys? Oh, I thought all they did was profile, shoot innocent big teddy bear robbers, and return fire on upstanding citizens that shoot at them first. Who would have thunk it!??
