GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — A suspect has been arrested after a man was shot and killed on Tuesday.
Marokus Juwell Ballard, 26, of Wilmington, is charged with first-degree murder.
Officers responded to an apartment complex on Stockton Way around 11 a.m. when they were told about a shooting.
Police identified the victim as Jasmon Rashad Graham, 32, of Wilmington.
The suspect fled the scene in a silver Honda and crashed near Pleasant Garden Road and Liberty Road, police say. The suspect then ran from the scene.
Officers caught up to Ballard and he was taken into custody. He is being held in the Guilford County Jail.
No officers were injured.
Neighbors living in Treybrooke Village were surprised to hear police sirens rush through their complex on Tuesday morning.
They tell FOX8 the only sirens they really hear are from ambulances for what they assume are medical calls.
“A delivery driver got robbed in the area,” said Tierra Miller, who used to live in the complex. “My husband, his car got broken into. But that was…the only thing we felt unsafe about.”
She says the neighborhood has a lot of kids and families there.
“It is very surprising. It was pretty quiet,” Miller said. “It’s very shocking to hear the news.”
