Suspect charged with murder in home invasion
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police and US Marshals arrested a man for murder in connection to a Friday home invasion that left one man dead and sent another to the hospital.
Police say with the help of Marshals task force members, officers arrested Zeer Nafis Cannady, 20, in the 100 block of Meares Street yesterday. Cannady is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder and several counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, among others.
Cannady's arrest comes after a robbery at a home near the intersection of Lilac Court and 13th Street sparked a shooting Friday afternoon. It started when witnesses say three men entered the home there to rob the victims, according to police. After that, Wilmington Police say shots were fired, hitting 47-year-old Aaron McGhee, who later died at the hospital.
Police say since the reports of the crime included three suspects, the investigation is still ongoing. Cannady remains in the New Hanover County Jail under $2,000,000 bond. His jail records show that he will make his first appearance in court on those charges today.
