The second and final suspect sought in the fatal shooting of a Fayetteville man Tuesday on Olivia Lane is still on the run.

Deon Jerrill Mclean, 22, of Walnut Street, and his brother, Everette "Little E" Mclean, 26, of Elm Street, are accused in connection with the murder of 22-year-old Antron Demon Hines in the 800 block of Olivia Lane.

Goldsboro police responded to Olivia Lane and Crawford Street at about 7 p.m. Upon arrival, they found Hines lying in the yard between 803 and 805 Olivia Lane suffering from a gunshot wound to the back.

Several witnesses identified the suspects, which led to the speedy capture of Everette Mclean, who was arrested around midnight Wednesday. He remains in the Wayne County Jail without bond.

Police still have no strong leads as to Deon Mclean's whereabouts, Goldsboro police spokesman Sgt. Chad Calloway said earlier this week.

A recent jail photo shows Deon Mclean wearing long dread locks, but police are unsure if he has altered his appearance to avoid capture.

Anyone with information is asked to call Goldsboro-Wayne Crime Stoppers at 735-2255. Callers can remain anonymous and could receive up to $1,000 if their information leads to a felony arrest.

The incident that led up to Hines' death on Tuesday snowballed from a double shooting involving Hines' brother, Jaquan Hines, which occurred just 40 minutes prior.

Jaquan Hines, 17, and Shawntana Thompson, 18, all of Goldsboro, were standing in the parking lot of Express Food Mart, 518 E. Elm St., when a hail of bullets rang out at about 6:20 p.m., according to police reports.

Jaquan Hines and Ms. Thompson were struck by gunfire and taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital for treatment. Both were treated and released. The extent of their injuries is unknown.

About the same time, two bullets also pierced a 1997 Chevy Suburban driven by Carolyn Samuel, 62, of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Ms. Samuel was traveling through the intersection of Elm and Slocumb streets when her SUV was struck twice by a shotgun.

Two males were chasing each other at the time of the incident, Ms. Samuel told police. One was carrying a shotgun and the other was armed with a handgun.

The man wielding a shotgun fired several shots, striking her car on the front left quarter panel and the back left window. He then got into a green minivan and took off, according to the police report.

One of the suspect's identified in the shooting was Everette Mclean. It is unclear if he will face more charges in connection with the earlier shootings.

Angered by the ordeal, Dakilia Hines, the sister of Jaquan and Antron Hines, went to one of the suspect's home on Elm Street and Audubon Avenue and confronted the Mclean brothers about shooting the teen.

The conversation ended abruptly when the two men allegedly pointed guns at her and threatened to shoot her, too, according to court records.

Ms. Hines got into her vehicle and left.

While driving around the area, she saw a green van that had been parked at the Mclean home now parked at Corney and Leslie streets. She followed the van to Crawford Street and Olivia Lane and watched them exit.

Carrying "long guns," the brothers allegedly ran in front of a house on the Olivia Lane side. She heard several gunshots and then saw the brothers get back into the van and leave the area, according to court records.

Ms. Hines told police she got out of her car and discovered that her older brother, Antron Hines, had just been shot.

Wayne County Emergency Medical Services personnel and the Goldsboro Fire Department was dispatched to the area. EMS transported Hines to Wayne Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police executed a search on Everette Mclean's home at 1300 Apt. B E. Elm St. They found a rifle under the carport, loads of ammunition and one spent 20-gauge shotgun shell.

At the time of Antron Hines' death, he was out on bond for allegedly shooting Robert Lee Mitchell II, 22, of Kornegay Street, in the face with a large caliber weapon Jan. 5.

Mitchell was driving north in the 500 block of Slocumb Street when Hines allegedly stood in the street and opened fire on him, police said.

Mitchell also reported Hines robbed him in the parking lot of Express Food Mart, 518 E. Elm St., on Dec. 23.

Calloway declined to release a motive for Hines' murder. He added the shooting was not gang- or drug-related, and Hines did not appear to be armed.

Calloway said the incident stemmed from an issue between two different families.

"In any place you can have two families who may have an issue with another, and it ends in a shooting or a death," he said. "This was not a random shooting."
