Suspect in fatal Fayetteville nightclub shooting surrenders
Posted March 20, 2012
Fayetteville, N.C. — Fayetteville police have arrested a man wanted in a fatal shooting at a nightclub this weekend.
Lendell Rogers Graham, 36, surrendered to police to face charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder, police said Tuesday. He was placed in the Cumberland County jail and denied bond.
Stephen Bruno, 22, of Hope Mills, was shot to death in the parking lot of Club Ciroc, at 6323 Raeford Road, early Saturday, police said.
Darrell Wilson, 26, was wounded in the incident and was treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.
Graham was released from prison in January after serving two years for convictions for dealing drug, according to state Department of Correction records. He also has convictions for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and common-law robbery dating to 1993.
Meanwhile, Fayetteville officials are working to revoke Club Ciroc's liquor license and close the club as a nuisance. A fight there last summer resulted in the shooting death of William Trower, 18, a recent graduate of Pine Forest High School.
