John Richardson, 53, of Greensboro, was arrested on Wednesday and is being charged with first-degree murder.

The charges stem from a shooting that took place on Jan. 25. On that date, police responded to the 3200 block of Yanceyville Street when they were told about a shooting. 

Officers found Michael Antown Hemphill, 46, of Greensboro, with a gunshot wound. He was then taken to the hospital.

He died in early February, turning the case into a homicide investigation.

Richardson was also charged with first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a felon and robbery with a dangerous weapon in connection to a fatal shooting last month in Greensboro.
