Rocky Mount police are looking for a white Honda Civic in connection with a double homicide that occurred Sunday night on Pender Street.
Rocky Mount police Cpl. Mike Lewis said around 11:15 p.m. Randy Levon Elliott, 22, and Demon Freeman, 22, were in a 1997 Cadillac Seville in front of Elliott’s family home on the 800 block of Pender Street when the suspect’s vehicle pulled alongside the victims and opened fire. The suspects were last scene speeding off in a white Honda, possibly two-door Civic with factory hubcaps.
Elliott and Freeman were taken to Nash General Hospital, where Elliott died. Freeman was flown to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville where he died.
One neighbor, who refused to give his name, said he was at a house down the block when the shooting happened.
“I just heard pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, and ducked down in my chair,” he said.
Other neighbors were visibly distraught by the double homicide, but refused to talk about what happened. An earlier report from neighbors who said a third man was inside the victims' vehicle has been determined to be false, police said.
Police are asking anyone with information on the homicide or on five other Sunday shootings is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 977-1111 or email@example.com.
