— Goldsboro police have arrested a third person in a June 11 hold-up in which two Hampton Inn desk clerks were shot.

On Tuesday, investigators arrested Quinton Edwin Moye, 18, of 38 Brooks Drive in Snow Hill. They charged him with one count of attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Investigators previously arrested Alysha Jeannette Williams, 20, of 132 Vanderbilt Circle, and Jonathan Glenn Sinclair, 16, of 408 Gulley St. They face the same charges, which stem from an attempted robbery at the Hampton Inn at 905 N. Spence Ave.

Three masked people demanded money from the desk clerk and shot him when he was slow to respond to their demands, police said. A second hotel employee was shot as the robbers ran from the lobby.

Employees Stephen King and Amanda Justice were treated at Wayne Memorial Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Moye was being held in the Wayne County Jail under a $200,000 secured bond. Williams, who is six months pregnant, was also being held under a $200,000 bond. Sinclair was being held under a $500,000 bond.
