— Goldsboro police named two men on parole for robbery convictions as suspects in the shooting of a store owner during a robbery in mid August.

A Crime Stoppers tip led to the arrest of Quentin Lamont Kenon, 20, of 208 Neal Street, on Thursday night, Goldsboro police said. He was being held in the Wayne Conty Jail under a bond of more than $1 million, pending his first court appearance Friday.

Police have also obtained warrants for the arrest of Joshua Earl Davis, 21, of 601 S. Center St., for the Aug. 18 shooting of Ribhi Mohammed Kandeel at the Brookside Mart, 2000 S. Slocumb St.

Davis was described as a dark-complexioned black man, standing 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. Officers warned he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about Davis' whereabouts should call Goldsboro-Wayne Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255, Wayne County Communications at 919-705-6572 or Investigator Dwayne E. Dean at 919-580-4211.

Davis, Kenon and Rashard Vondarius Oliver, 18, of 1218 Franklin St., were charged with attempted first-degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Davis also faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a female and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Kandeel was recovering from his gunshot wound, police said.

Davis was placed on parole until February 2009 after a prison sentence for committing robbery with a dangerous weapon in December 2004, according to state Department of Correction records. He was released on May 29, 2008, after serving 31 months of a minimum of 38- to 55-month sentence.

DOC lists Kenon as an absconder from parole. He served a year in prison for resisting an officer and a probation violation.

Kenon was given probation in January 2006 after being convicted for conspiracy to commit armed robbery and felony breaking-and-entering.
