Two arrested after gunfire erupts at family gathering


Two men were arrested last week after they allegedly exchanged gunfire during a family gathering in the northern part of the county.

Brandon Marcel Bryant and Kendrick Eugene Sellars, Jr. have both been charged with felonies for their alleged roles in the shootout at 2665 Albert Jeffries Road – an address that’s situated within a mile of Green Level’s municipal limits.

According to the office of Alamance County’s sheriff, the two men opened fire during the get-together last Tuesday afternoon. Although no injuries were reported as a result of the gun shots, two vehicles were apparently hit in the crossfire.

According to the sheriff’s office, Bryant was the first of the two suspects to be apprehended after the shootout. The 35-year-old black male, 2006 South Ashland Drive,  Burlington, was reportedly tracked down while deputies were still at the scene of the crime. Meanwhile, Sellars, a 32-year-old black male of 2715 Berkley Drive in Burlington, apparently surrendered himself to the authorities later that day.
