GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police arrested Tuesday a 24-year-old man in connection with the Oct. 11 double shooting that left one man dead and another hospitalized.

Anthony Lamont Rowells, of 920 Logan St., in Greensboro faces a charge of first-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Jahed Nasir Brailey.

Brailey and Keslan Marquez Shaw, 17, both of Greensboro, were found in a parked car in the 2300 block of Juliet Place about 12:30 a.m. Both had multiple gunshot wounds, said Capt. Nathaniel Davis.

The victims were found in the car, but may not have been shot there, police said at the time.
