Fayetteville police go door to door hoping for clues in kidnapping, murder

Posted: Updated:
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

Fayetteville Police detectives returned to an area Monday where a man was robbed and fatally shot early Sunday morning.

Detectives handed out flyers around Shaw Road and asked people if they recognized the man or the SUV captured by surveillance cameras at a gas station about two miles away.

"We believe that there are quite a few people here in Fayetteville who know who this individual is," said assistant police chief Capt. Katherine Bryant. "It is quite a good picture, and we just need a name to work off of. That would help us greatly with our investigation."

Bryant said at 4:45 a.m. Sunday, a series of crimes began at the Kangaroo Express Citgo gas station on Bragg Boulevard at Shaw Road. She said three men in a newer model silver Kia Sportage accosted 27-year-old Errol Williams, of Rockingham, in the parking lot and forced him to drive down Shaw Road to an area along Gregory Street.

There, the suspects robbed and fatally shot Williams.

"We have at least three to four individuals who are out there who are armed and dangerous," Bryant said. "They are willing to commit very violent crimes, to include murder."

In addition, police believe the men returned to the convenience store Sunday afternoon, robbed two more people and took the surveillance video recorder, not knowing police already had the video.

"It only leads us to believe how dangerous of a threat they pose to the community," Bryant said.

That is concerning to Willa McLeod, who lives near where the robberies and shooting happened.

"We're not supposed to be like this," McLeod said as her granchildren played in her front yard Monday. "We're supposed to live in peace and harmony. Right now there's not any peace nowhere around here.

"You don't know when kids are safe. You don't know when you're safe. And a bullet does not have any name on it."

She hopes for a little peace if someone comes forward to help police.

"That person will probably go crazy again," McLeod said. "He could get somebody else."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. P. Orellano with the Fayetteville Police Department at  (910) 988-6543 or Crimestoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477). 

Crimestoppers information can also be submitted electronically by visiting http://www.fay-nccrimestoppers.org/send_a_tip.aspx and completing the anonymous online tip sheet.
