— Fayetteville police on Wednesday issued arrest warrants on break-in charges for two men, including one already charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of a store owner.

Shane Tradale Johnson, 21, of 545 Hilliard Drive, and Robert Joseph Bethea, 22, of 926 Shannon Drive, are wanted on charges of breaking and entering and larceny. Police said they were last seen operating a silver Volvo.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts should call Fayetteville police at 910-433-1856.

Johnson has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the June 2009 death of Waheed Abdo Abdulla, 30, and robbery with a dangerous weapon in an unrelated case.

Investigators say that Abdulla, owner of the Ya-Ya Food Mart, went outside to investigate a disturbance and was shot by a stray bullet from Johnson's gun. Another man, Michael Antoine McLaurin, has been charged with killing Johnson's brother, Demetrius Deshawn Johnson, in the confrontation.
