— A fifth person was arrested Wednesday in connection with a fatal shooting last summer in Kinston, police said.

Jarion Jerrod Phillips was charged with murder and accessory after the fact to murder in the June 26 death of Antonio Larinzo Hines.

Hines, 18, was found dead on the property of Westside Free Will Baptist Church, at 1205 Lynn Drive, shortly after police responded to a shots-fired call in the area of Bill Faye Park, which is next to the church.

Thomas Maurice Bullock, 19, Tyrek Rashaad Leach, 18, Jaquel Daquan Lawson, 20, Christopher Daquonne Hembry, 20, were all arrested last June and charged with murder in the case.

Police haven't released details of a possible motive for the shooting.
