— Durham police on Tuesday asked for the public's help as they continue to search for a man charged in the February shooting death of a Durham woman.

Warrants have been issued charging Arsenio Jarmal Lamberth, 23, with murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle, possession of a firearm by and convicted felon and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

Police said the brothers robbed a man of $20 at gunpoint and then fired shots at the man's vehicle as he drove away. One of the shots struck and killed Dawson as she was walking on Holloway Street, police said.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Arsenio Lamberth is asked to call Durham police at 919-560-4440, extension 29325, or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.

    Whoever is hiding this person, family or not should be charge as high as the court will allow. Why get yourself in trouble over someone like him who is already in deep trouble. Who ever you are, its not worth it. When caught, and he has his day in court, the jury will find him guilty and the judge will sentence him to life in prison. A man was killed and now these two guys will face their dire consequences.
