— Cumberland County authorities are looking for suspects in a deadly shooting.

Chas Sanchez, 25, was gunned down around 4:30 a.m. Saturday along Wickersham Drive. Deputies said Sanchez was shot several times in what they said may have been a robbery attempt.

The Sheriff's Office said the vehicle seen leaving the area of the crime possible had an interior dome light that did not work and the taillights appeared to be continuous across the rear of the vehicle.

Officials said evidence at the scene suggests two people were involved.

Anyone with information should call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at (910) 323-1500 or Fayetteville/Cumberland Crimestoppers at (910) 483-8477. A reward of up to $1,000 will be paid for information leading to the arrest of the individuals responsible for Sanchez's death.
