A third suspect wanted in a fatal shooting at a local hotel turned himself in to police Monday.
Jose A. Roman, 18, of Dudley, was arrested by Goldsboro police after he turned himself in, said LaToya Henry, spokeswoman for the city of Goldsboro.
Roman is charged with one count of murder, one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon in connection to a Friday night killing at America’s Best Value Inn off U.S. 70 in Goldsboro.
He was booked at the Wayne County jail without bond, and his first court appearance was Tuesday.
Police identified Roman and two other suspects, Cameron C. Smith, 18, and Jaime E. Toledano, 20, both of Dudley, during a homicide investigation into the death of 34-year-old hotel resident Tishan Geigher.
Geigher was found lying outside hotel Room 122 suffering from gunshot wounds when police arrived on scene around 10:38 p.m. Friday, Henry said. Wayne County Emergency Medical Services workers pronounced Geigher dead when they arrived on scene.
During the investigation, agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the State Bureau of Investigation and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office assisted police, Henry said. Goldsboro police obtained warrants on the three suspects developed during the investigation.
Agents with the ATF Task Force and sheriff’s deputies arrested Smith in Dudley on Saturday, and members of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Team and patrol arrested Toledano on Sunday, Henry said.
Police charged Toledano and Smith each with one count of murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. Both were booked at the Wayne County jail without bond, and both appeared in court Monday.
In addition to the three arrests, police are seeking information to identify a person of interest in the case, Henry said. The person appears to have red or orange hair.
Anyone with information regarding the person of interest or the fatal shooting should call Robert Gardner, investigator with the Goldsboro Police Department, at 919-580-4216 or 919-750-6572.
