SANFORD — A local man was arrested and charged Monday in connection with a recent drive-by shooting that left one man dead, according to police.

Kendrell Jamar Sanders, 22, of Sanford, was charged with felony first-degree murder and felony first-degree attempted murder, among other charges, in Greensboro where he was allegedly staying with family, according to Sanford Police Department Capt. David Smith. 

The arrest stems from a drive-by shooting in which Timotheus Devon Dunbar, 28, of Sanford, was shot and killed while driving a vehicle on North Horner Boulevard in late November.  

Sanders was reportedly transported to Lee County Jail Monday night and held with no bond. Kevin Foushee, of Sanford-based law firm Doster, Post, Silverman & Foushsee, was appointed as Sanders's attorney Tuesday and his next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 2, according to court documents. Foushee could not be reached for comment. 

Sanders was also charged with felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and felony discharging a firearm into an occupied motor vehicle, Smith said, and more charges are pending. The arrest was made in conjunction with the Greensboro Police Department, he said. 

The 22-year-old has an extensive criminal record dating back to 2007 including several narcotics charges, according to the N.C. Department of Public Safety database.
