UPDATE: A third suspect in the shooting death of Jeremy Daron Taylor was arrested Thursday night by Moore County detectives. Patrick Jamar Stubbs, 36, of Carthage, was charged with one count of murder and is being held in the Moore County Detention Center with no bond pending a first appearance in Moore County District Court.

Three people have been arrested in the slaying of Jeremy Daron Taylor.

Taylor, 40, died of a gunshot wound on Sunday in Vass. First responders found his body lying on White Rock Road, where bystanders were attempting to resuscitate him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Edward Jarmaine Allbrooks of Aberdeen was arrested Wednesday evening in connection with Taylor’s death. The 33-year-old is charged with murder.

Laura Nicole McLean, 37, was arrested on Thursday. A resident of Carthage, she is also charged with murder. Moore County Detectives arrested Patrick Jamar Stubbs, 36, of Carthage, Thursday night. He also was charged with one count of murder.

Allbrooks has been convicted of numerous crimes in Moore County since 2003, according to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety’s online offender database. He served a brief sentence at Craven Correctional Institution in Vanceboro for possession of a firearm by a felon in 2013.

McLean’s criminal record includes multiple misdemeanor convictions. She previously spent four months at Fountain Correctional Center for Women in Edgecomb County.

Allbrooks, McLean and Stubbs are being held without bond at the Moore County Detention Center in Carthage. Their arrests came shortly after the Moore County Sheriff’s Office announced a $500 cash reward for information about the shooting.

Once Allbrooks and McLean were arrested, the agency issued a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Stubbs.

Stubbs has been convicted of multiple felonies, including robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Taylor is survived by his parents and two siblings. A walk-through viewing will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday in the chapel of Simon Funeral Home. All attendees must wear a mask.
