RALEIGH — Police arrested a Fuquay-Varina man and charged him with helping a man wanted for murder flee from authorities.
William Oscar Talavera, 24, of 1724 Greenbriar Drive, was charged with being an accessory after the fact Monday by Holly Springs police.
The police investigated the June 4 shooting death of Douglas Jamal Mangum, a 19-year-old honor student who might have been mistaken for a Bloods gang member because of a red shirt he wore.
Police think Talavera helped George Damel Young, 23, of Cary, flee from Charlotte to Fuquay-Varina on July 30, knowing that Young was wanted by police, according to arrest warrants.
Young was arrested Aug. 4.
Talavera was held at the Wake County jail Monday in lieu of a $500,000 bond.
