GREENSBORO, N.C. — Two Greensboro men have been arrested and charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a North Carolina A&T football player, police confirmed in a news release on Thursday.
Jermane Clark, a student and football player at A&T, was shot and killed outside of his off-campus apartment on Stedman Street Tuesday night.
The shooting happened around 11 p.m. on April 29 at the 400 block of Stedman Street.
Greensboro Police say the incident happened when a transaction over a quarter pound of marijuana turned into a robbery. Clark appears to have been selling the marijuana, according to police.
Police found Clark, 22, suffering from a gunshot wound. Emergency Medical Services personnel performed advanced first aid on Clark, however, he was pronounced deceased at Moses Cone Hospital.
Kendrick Louis Robinson, 22, of 619 Sharing Terrace, Greensboro, was arrested at his home around 6:30 a.m. Thursday.
Lemiah Wyatt Sanders, Jr., 20, of Winston-Salem, was arrested at a home at 905 Benjamin Benson Street, Greensboro, around 7 a.m. Thursday.
Police said Robinson and Sanders are both charged with first degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Both men were taken into custody without incident.
Investigators say they are not looking for more suspects.
Lemiah Wyatt Sanders was charged in connection with the 2011 murder of a security officer at Greensboro College. The charges were eventually dismissed by the D.A. due to lack of evidence, according to the Assistant D.A.
Before he became an Aggie, Clark played football for R.J. Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem.
He spent two seasons at R.J. Reynolds and by his junior season, recorded 110 tackles and was named first-team All-Central Piedmont 4A as a defensive lineman.
Clark graduated from Reynolds High School in 2010.
Clark was a highly recruited prospect out of Oak Ridge Military Academy, where he led the football team to a 10-0 record in 2010 by playing running back, safety and outside linebacker.
He originally signed with University of Colorado before transferring to A&T in 2013.
