FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

Fayetteville Police arrested a third suspect Wednesday in connection with the Sept. 1 kidnapping and murder of Errol Williams.

Members of the U.S. Marshal's Task Force, along with detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department, arrested Kourtney Terrell Reed, 20, at a home in St. Pauls, N.C.

Reed is charged with two counts of first degree kidnapping, and one count each of first degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Police say Reed was hiding in the attic of the St. Pauls home when he fell through the ceiling into the presence of the arresting officers.

Reed was named Sept. 5 in connection with the kidnapping and murder of Williams. Police say Williams was kidnapped from the parking lot of a convenience store at Bragg Boulevard and Shaw Road around 4:45 a.m. on Sept. 1.

Police say the suspects forced Williams to drive about a mile away where they shot and killed him.

Police are still seeking 31-year-old Kelly Eugene Elliott, who is believed to be the triggerman in the crime. He is charged with first degree murder, two counts of first degree kidnapping, and robbery with a dangerous weapon. He is also believed to be the man seen in surveillance video at the crime scene.

Police have also arrested two other men believed be associates of Reed and Elliott.

On Sept. 3, police arrested 31-year-old Eric Lamont Phillips at his home on charges of drug possession and possession of a firearm.

On Sept. 6, police arrested Anthony Solomon Porter, 26, on charges of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury in connection with an Aug. 18 shooting. He is also charged with conspiracy to commit a felonious assault, and two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Police have not said how Porter is connected to the Sept. 1 murder, only that he and Phillips are associates of Elliott and that they remain suspects in several criminal investigations.

Fayetteville Police Chief Harold Medlock said police are investigating the possibility that the men were involved in an incident early Friday where a man was shot to death outside Chief's 25 Plus nightclub on Rowan Street.

In that case, police say a shootout erupted when victims of an attempted armed robbery pulled out their own guns and opened fire. Derrick Morrisey, 37, of Raeford, who was walking a woman to her car, was hit and killed by a stray bullet, according to police.

Medlock said Eilliott should be considered armed and dangerous.
