Two Salisbury men have been charged with murder because of their involvement in the shooting death of a man at Pine Hill Apartments on Thursday.
But police are still looking for the man they say shot the 24-year-old Person County victim.
Salisbury police arrested Alkeen Aray Houston, 23, of 1417 N. Church St., and Cajuan Ali Thomas, 22, of 410 W. 15th St. Apt. 42 North on Friday.
Salisbury Police Chief Mark Wilhelm said he couldn’t elaborate on their role in the shooting.
Police said Christopher Javon Vincent was shot several times Thursday evening at the apartment complex.
Pine Hill is a Salisbury Housing Authority community located at the end of West 15th Street next to the Spencer city limits,.
When police arrived at the apartment complex, they found Vincent in the living room of apartment 10-D.
Vincent lived in Hurdle Mills, a community in Person County near Roxboro. Police described him as a boyfriend of Deseree Austin, who lived in apartment 10-D.
Police are still looking for their prime suspect, Austin’s ex-boyfriend Tremaine O. Outlaw, 20, whose last known address was 136 Pearl St.
Outlaw is known to police and has been banned from having any contact with Austin, who has a child by him.
Wilhelm said Austin had a domestic violence protection order, much like a restraining order, against Outlaw, and an outstanding warrant existed against Outlaw for violating that civil order.
Houston and Thomas are being held in the Rowan County Detention Center without bond.
