Arrest Made in 2009 Southern Pines Murder
A Southern Pines man has been charged with murder in connection with a 2009 shooting death.
Southern Pines police officers on Sunday arrested Antonio Lamont McKeithan, 37, of the 1200 block of West Wisconsin Avenue, and charged him with first-degree murder.
According to the Moore County jail website, McKeithan is also facing three counts of probation violations.
The arrest stems from an investigation into a shooting that happened about 11:30 p.m. July 20, 2009, near 330 South Stephens St.
Officers responded to a report of shots fired with person down and discovered the victim, Daniek Davon Burns, 20, of 400 N. Hardin St., had been shot. He was transported to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst, where he later died from his wounds.
McKeithan appeared before a Moore County magistrate and was jailed without bond pending a hearing on March 21 in District Court.
Police department officials were unavailable for comment Tuesday to provide any other details on the arrest.
