FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) – Two people have been charged in a broad-daylight Fayetteville shooting Saturday that left a man in critical condition.


Shortly after 10:30 a.m., officers responded to a shooting on Raeford Road, near Wildwood Drive.

Police say a fight led to the shooting of Lorenzo A. Williams, 30.

The incident began when two people were leaving a business on Raeford Road at the same time the victim was leaving a neighboring business, police said.

Both parties began arguing and then the altercation turned physical, police say. At least one of the suspects pulled out a gun and began shooting at the victim.

Both suspects then fled the area in a red Toyota Camry, according to police. Police say the victim was shot multiple times.


Officers located the Camry shortly after and conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of Owen Drive and Village Drive. Once the vehicle stopped, a female was detained but the male inside the vehicle fled on foot. Officers chased the suspect and detained him in the 2800 block of Skycrest Drive.

Jumaane Remerius Pugh, 39, of Sycamore Court and Keyvonna K. Jones, 22, of Aftonshire Drive were both charged with attempted first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine and felony conspiracy, police said.

Pugh is also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The victim was transported to the hospital in critical condition.
