Police in Fayetteville, North Carolina, say they have arrested a man whom they believe killed another man and injured three others on Saturday.
On Monday, Fayetteville police announced the arrest of 21-year-old Rav’von Jimani Sparks, a resident of Fayetteville, who has been charged with the murder of 31-year-old Emmanuel Lashon Smith.
According to a press release, at approximately 9:27 p.m. on Saturday, officers responded to a shots fired notification from Shot Spotter and received multiple 911 calls reporting a shooting along the 1500 block of Slater Avenue.
Upon arrival, officers were notified by EMS that four individuals had been transported to a local hospital with gunshot wounds.
Fayetteville police said that in addition to the murder charge, Sparks has been charged with one count of felony conspiracy, three counts of attempted first-degree murder, and three counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
