Fayetteville, North Carolina – Police are working to find out who killed two people found in a Fayetteville home overnight.
According to the Fayetteville Police Department, officers responded at around 12:15 p.m. Monday to a home in the Creeks Edge townhouse community in the 5700 block of Aftonshire Drive.
The owner said he returned home to find a man on the floor of his home, and Fayetteville police found a second person shot and killed outside in the backyard.
Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
Fayetteville Police Department Lt. Shawn Strepay said it appears a third party is involved.
Although police did not identify the victims, one was identified as 33 years old Marchelleux Braddy by family members who spoke at WRAL News. Braddy’s two sisters didn’t want to appear on camera but said their brother was a good man who didn’t deserve to die.
Although the police did not release the names of the victims, the sisters felt comfortable sharing their brother’s name and photo.
An investigation was still ongoing as of noon.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective T. Kiger at 910-705-6527 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-TIPS (8477). Neighbors are urged to check their doorbells and security cameras for footage that could help identify the shooter.
