2 young men arrested for violent offense: Murder charges

A football player was recently killed, and two Greensboro men were arrested and charged in connection to the crime. The authorities suspect that the North Carolina AT&T football player was shot over a drug purchase gone wrong. The two men were arrested and face criminal charges for the alleged violent offense.

On April 29 at about 11 p.m., local police officers responded to an apartment complex regarding a call about shots fired. The officers found the 22-year-old suffering from what they determined to be a gunshot wound, and he was later pronounced dead at an area hospital. The investigators hypothesize that the football player was attempting to sell marijuana to the two suspects, but something went wrong with the transaction, leading the two to shoot the football player and steal the marijuana.

This case presents many questions such as why the investigators suspected the two men in the first place. These questions will likely be addressed when the two are forming their defenses against their violent offense accusations. Particularly since the futures of these young men are at stake, every effort must be taken to protect their North Carolina legal rights while keeping their best interests in mind during the fight to present a formidable criminal defense.
