Posted August 28

Shaquan Darnell "Q" Parker

— One of two men wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in Spring Lake was arrested Wednesday, police said. 

Shaquan Darnell "Q" Parker, 23, of 302 Olive St. in Spring Lake, is charged with first-degree murder in the July 19 homicide of Carey Terelle McLean, who was shot and killed in the 400 block of D Street. 

Parker was apprehended at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Victory Chapel Church, located on North Bragg Boulevard. Investigators said they responded to the church after receiving a Crime Stoppers tip about Parker being there. He was taken into custody without incident. 

Parker was in the Cumberland County jail Thursday under no bond. 

Spring Lake police are still searching for Jerri "Tweet" Davis, 34, of 4228 Fulton St. in Fayetteville. Davis, who is also charged with first-degree murder in the incident, is considered armed and dangerous, authorities said.

According to investigators, Parker's sister, Shante Ellis, argued with McLean the day before he was killed.

Ellis, 25, of 448 D St., is already in custody on a charge of felony conspiracy to commit murder.

Anyone with information about Davis' whereabouts should call Spring Lake police at 910-436-0350 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-8477.

    Your comment reminds me of the bumper sticker that I see occasionally: "Christians aren't perfect just forgiven."

    Why do you believe that? According to scripture, you need only profess a belief in Jesus Christ as your savior in order to be saved and enter heaven. www.jesus-is-savior.com/how_to_be_saved.html

    So, if Mr. Parker and Mr. Davis believe in Jesus, you'll be seeing them in heaven. If not, why not?

    No executing in NC, ever. Life in prison will be better served and without seeing parole. He can find a church service in prison.

    The prison experience will probably take that smile off his face.

    Unfortunately it is sad that these days we rely on what we hear from media and people before we know what really happened! So all the negative comments below are unnecessary to because you're listening to a one sided story! Maybe this person felt the need to do what he did maybe you would've done the same. By no means am I justifying what was done , sometimes we don't think before we act and we are all guilty of this.

    According the EPA chief, they are acting like this because of Global Warming.
