A fifth person has been arrested in connection with the 2017 shooting death of a 52-year-old Fayetteville man.

Quantez Green, 20, of the 3400 block of Ireland Drive, was charged with first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

The charges stem from the death of Alton Fitzgerald Williams, who was found fatally shot in the front yard of a home on Eldorado Road on Aug. 18, 2017. Authorities said the shooting was the result of a robbery.

Police said Green was in possession of a stolen handgun at the time of his arrest and has also been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Demetrius Hammonds, of the 22 block of Carbine Street, Solomon Broady, of the 1900 block of Progress Street, Jermaine Florence, of the 1900 block of Progress Street and Olander Sanders Jr., of the 300 block of Diana Street were previously arrested and charged with first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery in connection with Williams’ death.

Green was being held without bond at the Cumberland County Detention Center Thursday night.

Fayetteville police said the investigation into Williams’ death remains active and anybody with information is asked to call police 910-818-3468 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-8477.
