Two suspects are accused of murder following a B&E at a Wayne County home. Around 5:30 AM Thursday, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office responded to a breaking and entering in progress on the 1900 block of Old Grantham Road. While en route, the responding officers were informed a shooting had just occurred at the residence and two suspects had fled in a silver four-door sedan. Deputies spotted the fleeing vehicle and finally pulled it over on Old Mt. Olive Highway. The driver of the vehicle was detained, but the passenger fled on foot before he was apprehended. When officers arrived at the residence, they found Rasheed D. Jackson had been shot. Jackson was pronounced dead at the crime scene. The investigation revealed the occupants in the home knew the intruders. As a result of the investigation, 24-year-old Deangelo R. Rivers and 24-year-old Isaac A. Taylor, both of Dudley, have been charged with an open count of Murder and First Degree Burglary. Rivers and Taylor both received a “No Bond Hold.”
The investigation into the case is ongoing. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Lt. Pierce at 919-580-4023 or Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.
