— The Hoke County Sheriff's Office was searching Monday for three men in connection with the shooting death of a Raeford man at a private club over the weekend.

Investigators say Antonio Brown, 28, of Raeford, and Tevin McNeill, 22, of Fayetteville, killed Royal Terrance Wyatt at McRae's, a club at 2923 Doc Brown Road, around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Wyatt, 33, was assaulted and then shot in the head with a 9-mm handgun, authorities said.

A third man, 27-year-old Kelly Stanback, also of Raeford, is wanted on accessory after the fact charges.

Keith Monroe, of 201 Platt Road, also faces an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder charge. He was arrested Monday and placed in the Hoke County jail under a $500,000 secured bond.

Investigators said they also found a marijuana plant in the yard of Monroe's home and obtained a warrant to search it.

Also on Monday, investigators received a tip that McNeill was inside a home on Richmond Drive in Fayetteville. Fayetteville police officers went to that home, but McNeill wasn't there.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Brown, McNeill or Stanback is asked to call the Hoke County Sheriff's Office at 910-875-5111.
