— Three men were charged with attempted murder in connection with the shooting of a Roanoke Rapids man, the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.

The incident happened Saturday in the parking lot of a Marathon gas station off N.C. Highway 158 and Zoo Road in Roanoke Rapids. Deputies said Kevin M. Ingram, 29, was sitting in a car with another man when they were robbed at gunpoint. Ingram was shot in the head during the robbery, and he remains in critical condition.

Deputies said they believe the crime was drug-related, but they did not provide further information.

An investigation led to the arrest of Lamar Mallory, 16, of Roanoke Rapids, Jasmane T. Clements, 22, of Weldon, and Moncrinique T. Clements, 25, of Weldon. The men were each charged with attempted murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and possession of marijuana.

Mallory was also charged with possession of cocaine. He and Jasmane T. Clements were each held under a $250,000 bond.

Moncrinique T. Clements also faces unrelated charges of resisting an officer, identity theft and possession of a stolen firearm. He was held under a $270,000 bond.

Deputies are searching for two more suspects: Marcus Lamont Winborne, 22, and Quayshawn “Shawn” Rogers, 21, both of Roanoke Rapids.

Chief Deputy Wes Tripp said the weapon used in the shooting has not been recovered, and the public is advised not to attempt to detain the suspects but call authorities at 252-583-1991 or Crime Stoppers at 252-583-4444.

Crime Stoppers pays cash for information leading to an arrest, and callers may remain confidential.
