NC woman arrested in shooting death of 18-year-old

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – Police in Greensboro say a 21-year-old woman has been arrested in Virginia on charges stemming from the shooting death of an 18-year-old.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports that Marisol Ciera Morris was arrested Monday at a fast-food restaurant in Altavista, Va., about 100 miles from Greensboro.

Morris is charged in the shooting death of Joshua Matthew Gilmore. Investigators learned that Morris knew Gilmore through family connections. Police said a motive has not yet been determined.

Morris is being held at the Campbell County jail without bond pending an extradition proceeding.

The shooting happened in front of a home next to where Gilmore lived after what police described as a disturbance.
