Burlington’s police department has announced the arrests of two suspects for a shooting last fall that left one person dead and another hospitalized.
According to Burlington’s police department, 21-year-old Treyquan Becton of Hillsborough and 18-year-old Micah Jamar Downey of Mebane are both currently behind bars for their alleged roles in the shooting, which ended the life of 24-year-old Quinnton Enoch.
Enoch was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene after the police department received a report of gunfire along the 800 block of Avon Avenue on the evening of November 23. Also wounded in the shooting was 32-year-old Christopher Moore, who was rushed to an area hospital for treatment of non-fatal injuries.
According to the police department, Becton was apprehended in Onslow County on March 8 and has since been transferred to Alamance County’s jail, where he is being held without bond.
The 21-year-old Hillsborough resident faces charges of first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill and the infliction of serious injury. He has also been charged with the possession of a stolen firearm.
Earlier today, police also took Downey into custody for first-degree murder as well as an assault charge comparable to Becton’s. He is also accused of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.
In a news release this afternoon, the city’s police department credited several agencies with helping it capture these suspects – namely the FBI, the U.S. Secret Service, the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation, the office of Onslow County’s sheriff, and the municipal police department in Mebane.
