Another arrest made in Kannapolis murder

KANNAPOLIS — Police have charged a second person with murder in the Aug. 9 shooting of a man whose body was found lying in the middle Central Drive near Wright Avenue.
Travis Tre’vance Boyce, 16, of 2003 Katherine St., was charged Wednesday with first degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon, the Kannapolis Police Department said this evening.
Police previously charged a 15-year-old with murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Jason Michael Sides, 33, was discovered lying in Central Drive with a gunshot wound around 9:20 p.m. on Aug. 9. He’d left the E-Z Stop Convenience Store near the corner of Central Drive and Wright Avenue just minutes earlier and was walking toward his home less than a half-mile away.
Emergency medical responders tried to save Sides’ life, but could not.
The 15-year-old charged in the murder was also charged, along with another 15-year-old, in break-ins and felony larcenies elsewhere in the city.
Kannapolis police say the investigation remains open.
Authorities ask anyone with information about the crime to call the Kannapolis Police Department at 704-920-4000 or Cabarrus County Crime Stoppers at 704-932-7463.
