A man was shot to death in North Carolina, but why remains a mystery even as a suspect is taken into custody.
This week, police in Wilmington, North Carolina, announced they arrested Malik Delquan Jones, 25, on first-degree murder and other charges. He is currently being held without bond in a North Carolina jail.
Around 10:45 p.m. on June 25, police responded to a street for a reported shooting.
When officers arrived, they found 20-year-old Jakai Dekine lying face down between two vehicles, police said. He was shot and died at the scene.
Police investigated and identified Jones as a suspect in the killing.
But authorities have not released a motive in the case.
“We are thankful for the dedication and the collaborative efforts of our officers in making this arrest. I also want to thank our community for their continued support,” said Chief Donny Williams.
