— Following weeks of investigation and the arrests of two suspects linked to the Bank of America shooting on June 17, Cary Police officials said they have identified the shooter.

Now, they are trying to locate the suspect.

Police said they believe the shooter was Phillip Thomas “Scoob” Williams, 34, of 3308 Rehoveth Church Road, Apt. R, Greensboro. His prior address was 1253 MacArthur Drive, Camden, NJ.

Williams is wanted for attempted murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

On June 17, Williams allegedly shot a 51-year-old Cary woman who was making a deposit at the Bank of America ATM, 801 SE Maynard Road .

The suspect then ran across Maynard Road to Cary Towne Center mall where he jumped into a red sedan with New York tags being driven by a male, according to police. The team then fled the scene.

On July 12, with the aid of the Cary Police Department, U.S. Marshals Service located and arrested Terrance Adam Lyles, 31, and Travis Monique Price, 24, both of 5400 Portree Place, Raleigh, for robbery with a dangerous weapon and accessory after the fact to robbery with a dangerous weapon, respectively.

The two were arrested in Philadelphia, and they were brought to North Carolina on August 1, police said. The two have been held in the Wake County Public Safety Center on a $250,000 bond each since their return.

If convicted of all charges, Williams could face a maximum sentence of life in prison, officials said. Lyles could face a penalty of 38 to 183 months in prison and Price could face 10 to 49 months in prison.

The woman who was shot is out of the hospital and doing well, officials said. Police said they are continuing to protect her identity out of concerns for her safety.
