Man charged with murder in 2012 killing


SOUTHERN PINES — Nearly three years after Rashawn Shaw was shot and killed at an apartment complex, police have made a murder arrest in the 28-year-old’s death.

Antonio Jamal Brown, 30, of Raeford, was arrested Friday in the June 26, 2012 killing, Southern Pines police Capt. Charles Campbell said in a statement.

Officers responded to a shots-fired call at the Brookside Park Apartments on Shaw Avenue and found Rashawn Shaw’s body, Campbell said. Brown was later identified as a suspect in the killing.

Brown is charged with first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a felon, discharging a firearm within city limits and second-degree trespassing. He is being held without bond in the Moore County Detention Center in Carthage and is scheduled to appear in court June 9.

Police are still investigating Shaw’s killing and detectives are asking anyone with information related to the June 2012 homicide to come forward.
