Police were searching Sunday for one of two suspects in a fatal double shooting at a hotel near Crabtree Valley Mall a day after the other suspect was arrested.
Brandon Xavier Hill, 29, fled police after a pursuit that began Sunday morning in Raleigh and ended in Durham County, Raleigh police said in a news release. Hill is facing a murder charge.
The driver of the vehicle carrying Hill was arrested after the chase, police said. Brittany Jenzell Hooks, 27, was charged with felony speeding to elude.
Seaga Edward Gillard, 28, was arrested Saturday and charged with murder. Gillard was being held at Wake County Detention Center, police said late Saturday in a news release.
Gillard and Hill are suspects in the fatal shootings of April Lynn Holland, 22, and Dwayne Garvey, 28, early Friday at America’s Best Value Inn at 3921 Arrow Drive. Gillard was charged in connection with Holland’s death, and Hill was charged in connection with Garvey’s death.
The bodies of Holland and Garvey were found about 5 a.m. Friday after a woman called 911 to report gunshots in the hallway outside her room on the second floor.
