GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Police announced late Wednesday afternoon that a second man has been charged in a Thanksgiving Day murder in Greenville.
35 year-old Pierre Ramone Rogers, of Washington, NC, was picked up from the Beaufort County Jail and booked into the Pitt County Detention Center under no bond. He’s charged with an open count of murder.
24-year-old Travarus McMillan was arrested at the Rodeway Inn and Suites in Plymouth on Tuesday. He appeared in court Wednesday morning.
Officers say McMillan shot 26-year-old Kenneth Wiggins on the 1000 block of West 6th Street on Nov. 26th around 3:30 p.m. Wiggins died at Vidant Medical Center later that same night.
Police say Wiggins managed to crawl into a nearby yard close to McKinley Avenue and West 6th Street, where he asked a person to call for an ambulance.
Neighbors told WNCT they heard anywhere from six to eight gunshots.
Police on scene spent some time conducting interviews in the area. Detectives believe the shooting stemmed from a dispute between people who knew each other and may have gang affiliations.
