SALISBURY — The Salisbury Police Department is looking for a third teenager wanted in the Aug. 27 shooting death of Kornell Marquise Cook, bringing the number of suspects to three area teenagers.

Cook, 24, was shot outside a family member’s residence at 642 Williams Road, at the Brenner Crossing Apartment complex just off Standish Street and Brenner Avenue. Cook was shot multiple times, police have said.

Police are looking for Travaree D’Von Miller, 18, of 111 Pearl St., and have warrants for his arrest on charges of murder and shooting into an occupied property. Miller weighs 170 pounds and is 5 feet 11 inches tall.

Soon after the shooting, police identified Elija-wn Unique Oglesby, 18, of 910 S. Jackson St. as a suspect in Cook’s death. Oglesby was charged with first-degree murder and discharging a firearm into an occupied property. He turned himself in the day after the murder and remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under no bond.

Two days after the homicide, police identified another suspect, Xavier Dionne Lowe, 17, of 617 E. Liberty St.. Police are still looking for Lowe and have warrants for his arrest on charges of murder and shooting into an occupied property.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of either Lowe and Miller is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or CrimeStoppers at 866-639-5245.
