FIRST ON 3: Second suspect in custody for home invasion murder

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police have a second suspect in custody in connection with a murder during a home invasion earlier this month.

Officers are still processing Markee George, 26, for the death of Aaron McGhee, according to WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley. McGhee, 47, died after being shot during a home invasion near Lilac Court and 13th Street June 13. Terae Kareen Graham was also shot, but he survived.

A relative tells WWAY police arrested George around 8:30 a.m. for murder, but the relative says George had nothing to do with the crime.

Last week police arrested Zeer Cannady, 20, and charged him with first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder and several counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, among other charges.

Police are still looking for a third suspect, but Rawley says they do not yet have a name to release.

The NC Department of Corrections website says George has a criminal record that includes ten convictions since the start of 2012 for crimes including communicating threats, assault on a female, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct. He received probation for all the offenses, including currently being on two years probation for five convictions in February.

Man robbed at gunpoint on Wilmington street

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police are investigating after a man said he was robbed at gunpoint while walking down the street.

Police say just before midnight last night, the victim flagged down an officer on patrol in the area of Market Street and Darlington Ave.

According to WPD, the man said he was walking home from a bar in the 300 block of Darlington when two men approached and pointed a handgun at him. The victim said one of the suspects bunched him in the face. He said the men pushed him down, took his wallet and phone and walked off.

The man then decided to walk to Market Street to try and find a police officer instead of heading home. Police say they think about 20 minutes passed between the attack and when the victim stopped the officer. When they went to look for the suspects, they were gone.
