WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — A man was arrested in Georgia on Wednesday in connection to the shooting death of a woman in Winston-Salem earlier this month, according to a Winston-Salem Police Department news release.

Just after 7 p.m. on April 3, officers got a call about gunshots around the 2200 block of Lula Street. While they were on the way to the scene, another caller told police that there was an unresponsive woman next to a car on Flag Street, adjacent to Lula Street.

When they got to the scene, they found Bria Tiera Robinson, 20, lying in a driveway on Flag Street. She had been shot and was pronounced dead on the scene by Winston-Salem EMS.

Investigators believe that this was an isolated incident, not a random act of violence.

WSPD authorities obtained a warrant for arrest charging Jeremy Cornelius Alexander, 34, of Winston-Salem, with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

At the time of the investigation, Alexander also had outstanding warrants for arrest for:

  • domestic violence protection order violation
  • forgery of an instrument
  • two counts of obtaining property by false pretense
  • assault on a child under 12
  • possession with the intent to sell and deliver marijuana
  • possession of a stolen motor vehicle

On Wednesday, he was arrested in Henry County, Georgia.

On Friday, he was charged with murder.

On April 29, he was extradited to North Carolina and taken to the Forsyth County Detention Center where he was served with a warrant for murder. He did not receive a bond.

The investigation is ongoing.
