GREENSBORO, N.C. – Jeremy Carter is now facing not just a murder charge for the death of Bakri Khidir -- but also a charge for felony possession of a stolen firearm.
The Guilford County District Attorney's Office said the new charge was added Friday.
Carter, 21, was arrested earlier this month after deputies said he made a fake order to Olivia's Restaurant in Greensboro, then shot and killed the delivery driver in what they expect was an attempted robbery.
Deputies explained that they obtained a search warrant for Carter's home and car. Inside his car is where they said they found a gun that was registered as stolen years ago from another county. Investigators are not sure if that was the weapon allegedly used in Khidir's murder.
Meanwhile, former coworkers of Khidir gathered Friday to honor him. Although he only worked from 2012-2014 at Diebold, a plant that assembles ATMs, he made a big impression.
"That's the kind of guy Bakri was," said former coworker Billy Oakley. "He left a lasting impression on you. He was an inspiration. Always happy, positive attitude."
The owner of Olivia's Restaurant, where Khidir worked at the time of his death, said he plans to reopen Monday.
