Suspect in Fayetteville club shooting apprehended

Posted April 3, 2012

— A man wanted in a fatal shooting last month at a Fayetteville nightclub was arrested Tuesday, police said.

Members of the U.S. Marshal’s Violent Fugitive Task Force took Carlos Roquize Whitted, 30, of Carlos Avenue, into custody shortly before noon at a home in the 600 block of Lyon Street, police said.

Whitted is charged with second-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and shooting into occupied property.

Stephen Bruno, 22, of Hope Mills, was shot to death in the parking lot of Club Ciroc, at 6323 Raeford Road, on March 17. Darrell Wilson, 26, was wounded in the incident and was treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

Police initially charged Lendell Rogers Graham, 36, in the case, but they later determined he wasn't involved and dismissed the charges against him.

    "Carlos Roquize is the real victim here. -abbynork"

    And how exactly did you determine that? Because he's accused of a crime? Do you know him? Has the case already been heard in a court of law, not the court of public opinion?

    I just cannot understand the mindset of some of these younger guys nowadays. There are too many out there like this guy who are too emotionally unstable and too quick to pull a gun at the smallest slight.
