FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — A man already charged with robbing a Hope Mills man is now accused of returning months later and killing him, deputies said.

Tyron Hall, 23, is charged with first-degree murder, discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury in connection with Joshua Gutierrez’s Nov. 12, 2015 killing, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said.

Hall had already been charged with the Aug. 8, 2015 robbery of Gutierrez, deputies said.

Gutierrez, 25, was beaten and robbed in August 2015 by three men who had arranged to buy marijuana at his residence, authorities said. During the robbery, a woman in the home was forced into a closet, officials said.

On Nov. 12 of that year, Gutierrez was found dead on the floor of a mobile home, deputies said. The same woman who was forced into the closet during the robbery was also shot when Gutierrez was killed, officials said.

A pair of men, David Rivera, of 6201 Earp Court, Hope Mills, and Abraham Devonte’a Shuler, of 6230 Twiggs Court, Parkton, are also charged in connection with the robbery. They were arrested in June of this year.

Hall was due to make a first appearance in court Monday. He was captured in August in Baltimore by a U.S. Marshals Service task force, officials said.
