PLYMOUTH, N.C. (WNCT) — The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a suspect in a murder that happened early Sunday.
Deputies responded around 1:30 a.m. to the Pea Ridge area of the county. They found a man who was shot inside a home. He was pronounced dead from multiple gunshot wounds. His name has not been released pending notification of next of kin.
A suspect was quickly identified and a warrant for first-degree murder was obtained for Raven A Williams, 30, of Edenton.
