— A sixth suspect wanted in the Oct. 31 killing of a 21-year-old Goldsboro mother of three was arrested Wednesday.

Davine Marquis Carr, 20, of 710 E. King St. in Kinston, was arrested by Kinston Department of Public Safety officers. He was transported to the Wayne County jail, where he is being held without bond.

Carr is charged in connection with the death of Shanekqua Adrianna Thompson, who was found shot in her minivan near the intersection of Sixth and Humphrey streets. The vehicle had crashed into woods along the road, and authorities said the van was hit by eight bullets. Thompson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Thompson was shot multiple times during a car chase involving several cars, police said. Her killing was connected to a shooting that was reported Oct. 28 at McDonald's and Waffle House locations on Wayne Memorial Drive in Goldsboro.

Family members said they believe Thompson's boyfriend, who was in the vehicle with her, was the intended target.

Cequan Phillips, 22, and Rahmel Phillips, 24, both of 2524 Sapphire Place in Kinston, and Joshua Collins, 24, of 2315 Briarfield Road in Kinston, were arrested Nov. 13. Anthony Graham, 30, of 2217 Hawthorne Ave., surrendered to police Nov. 14. Alquan Deshawn Hill, 23, of 2709 Hodges Road in Kinston, was arrested Sunday.

All are being held at the Wayne County jail without bond.

Investigators said more charges are expected against the group and additional arrests are possible.

    Maybe we should bring back the draft for the Army. If guys just want to shoot and kill people, send them off to fight wars. They are useless to society. This is just disgusting.
