FAIRMONT, NC (WMBF) – Five suspects have been charged in the shooting death of a teenager in Fairmont, North Carolina last Friday. Two have been arrested and are in police custody.

Daquan Stephens, 16, was shot while playing basketball at the Calvin Haggin Park on Linden Street in the Fairmont Community of Robeson County last Friday just before 6 p.m., according to Fairmont Police Chief Danny Parker.

The five suspects have been identified as Jerod McNeill, 16, Bobby Jones, 19, Julius Rogers, 20, Natasha Owens, 23, and Shinaha Grissett, 22. All five have been charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

According to a news release from Fairmont Police, all five suspects, along with Owens' 2-year-old child, drove to the park where Stephens was playing basketball. McNeill and Stephens began talking, and then McNeill pulled out a weapon and fired multiple rounds at Stephens, striking him multiple times, the release stated.

"After conducting several interviews, it is clear to us that this incident was planned by suspect Jerod McNeill," officials stated.

Stephens was taken to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Police have arrested Shinaha Grissett, who is identified by the police as the driver in this incident, and Natasha Owens, the release stated. There are outstanding arrest warrants for Rogers, Jones and McNeill.
