— Authorities have captured the second and final man sought in last month's shooting death of Ya-Ya Food Mart owner Waheed Abdulla, 30.

Shane Tradale Johnson, 20, of 545 Hilliard Drive in Fayetteville, turned himself in to police on Wednesday.

He was wanted on a charge of involuntary manslaughter in the case. He also had an unrelated robbery with a dangerous weapon charge, police said.

Members of the Violent Fugitives Task Force found the other suspect, Michael Antoine McLaurin, 27, hiding in a wooded area of Darlington County, S.C. on Wednesday.

He was being held in jail pending extradition to Fayetteville.

McLaurin is charged with first-degree murder, discharging a weapon into an occupied vehicle and possession of a firearm by a felon.

The charges stem from the June 27 slaying of Abdulla, the owner of Ya-Ya Food Mart, 3122 Murchison Road. Police said Abdulla went outside to break up a disturbance and was hit by a stray bullet.
