— Investigators have charged a 34-year-old Fayetteville man with the killing of a man on the 400 block of D Street in Spring Lake on Saturday.

Now authorities are asking for the public's help in finding Jerri "Tweet" Davis, who Spring Lake police said should be considered "armed and dangerous."

Davis, of 4228 Fulton Street in Fayetteville, is charged with killing Cary Terell McLean, who died from a single gunshot wound to his upper body, Spring Lake police said.

"Our investigation has determined that Davis committed the murder along with several other unidentified suspects," Spring Lake police said in a statement.
