Police have arrested two teenage suspects in connection with the Tuesday night homicide of a 16-year-old.

According to police reports, officers were called around 11 p.m. to the 900 block of Redgate Avenue about a shooting. When they arrived, they reportedly found Murray Deshawn Chamberlain dead in a yard behind the address on Redgate.

Chamberlain was allegedly shot by Ladarrius Tavon Hatcher, 18. Hatcher fled the scene before officers arrived, but later turned himself into the magistrate’s office on Cokey Road. He has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and is being held in Edgecombe County without bond.

Police also charged a 15-year-old male with accessory after the fact and took him to Pitt Juvenile Detention Facility in Greenville.

Chamberlain’s death is the 11th homicide for Rocky Mount in 2010. Arrests have been made in all, but two of the deaths.

This is an ongoing investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact police at 972-1411 or Crime Stoppers at 977-1111 or crimestoppers@rockymountnc.gov.
