Two men have been arrested in connection with a Halloween night murder on Simmons Street, Sanford police have announced.
Darrell Hill, 26, of Lightwood Lane in Sanford and Jahmorie Antwane Wilson, 19, of Greensboro each face charges of first degree murder and discharging a firearm into occupied property. Hill also faces a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Hill and Wilson are accused in connection with the Halloween night killing of 27-year old Jamar Raynique Griffin Jr. of Cameron. Police found Griffin in the roadway at Simmons and South Moore streets suffering from gunshot wounds. He was later pronounced dead at Central Carolina Hospital.
Hill and Wilson were arrested at Wilson’s apartment in Greensboro.
Hill was also recently in trouble with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office for making a threat of mass violence against a local public school. Details about that case are largely unknown, but he was arrested on the charge on Nov. 1, the day after Griffin’s death. It’s unknown whether there is any connection between the two cases.
Both Hill and Wilson were placed in the Lee County Jail without bond.
