WELDON — Authorities say they have arrested a second suspect in the killing of a Weldon teen that led to the retaliation slaying of a 2-year-old girl.

Halifax County deputies told the Daily Herald of Roanoke Rapids that 19-year-old Dalonte Bradley is charged with first-degree murder in the Aug. 4 killing of 15-year-old Keyuon Garner.

Authorities say four people angry about Garner’s death then shot at a home in Weldon the next day, killing 2-year-old Dy’uanna Anderson and wounding her grandmother. Four suspects have been charged in that shooting.

Deputies are still looking for a third suspect, Teddy Anderson Jr., in the teen’s death. He is the uncle of the toddler killed.

Bradley was arrested Thursday. It wasn’t known if he had an attorney.
