Two men have been charged in connection with the Halloween night murder of 27-year-old Jamar Raynique Griffin Jr. of Sanford.

Sanford Police Department Maj. Vincent Frazer said late Tuesday that SPD officers arrested the two suspects, Darrell Hill, of Sanford, and Jahmorie Antwane Wilson, of Greensboro, at an apartment complex on Friendway Road in Greensboro.

Hill, 26, of the 100 block of Lightwood Lane in Sanford, was charged with one count of first-degree murder, three counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied property and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Wilson, 19, of the 600 block of Friendway Road in Greensboro, is charged with one count of first-degree murder and three counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied property.

Griffin was found lying in the roadway with gunshot wounds in the 200 block of Simmons Street on Oct. 31 and died from his injuries, according to Sanford police.

Officers responded about 9:05 p.m. to a report of shots fired in the area of Simmons and South Moore Streets.

Emergency medical workers took Griffin to Central Carolina Hospital, where he died a short time later, Sanford police said.

Wilson and Hill were taken before a Lee County magistrate where they were placed in the Lee County Jail under no bond. Both will have an appearance in Lee County District Court on Wednesday.
