WILMINGTON, NC (STARNEWSONLINE) — According to STARNEWSONLINE the man charged in a murder outside a Wilmington convenience store was captured about noon Friday by the U.S. Marshals Service.

The Marshals Service tracked Terrell Robinson, 20, to a home at 210 W. Dunham St. in Elizabethtown, said Russ Fields, a deputy marshal with the Eastern North Carolina Violent Fugitive Task Force, which includes the Wilmington Police Department and N.C. Probation and Parole.

Robinson was wanted in the murder of 22-year-old David McPhatter, who was gunned down during a dispute at Ninth and Castle streets.

The marshals surrounded the house in Bladen County and at first another man came out, Fields said. The marshals repeatedly ordered Robinson to come out. Eventually, he surrendered and was arrested without incident, Fields said.

Authorities poured countless hours into the search.

“There have been a lot of haystacks to find this needle,” Fields said. “But we finally got him.”

Detectives have accused Robinson and a second man, Codey Guerrero, 20, of shooting McPhatter three times during a May 12 party outside the convenience store. Guerrero turned himself in days after the killing to face one count of first-degree murder.

These young guys have to do better than this. There is more opportunities out there than to be in the mix of all this. What do these people get out of killing people I mean really you’re going to get caught regardless and if its not the police its one of your friends snitching on you. Go out and get a job make your parents proud of you because as of now they probably are embarrassed by this, I know I would be. This is people families you’re killing and that’s what they don’t understand. Would if this was one of you’re family members then what. Teenagers and Young adults need to get their life together and realize when they do things like this there is always a comeback for you. Especially if its over something not that serious or even if it was serious if you’re not defending yourself instead you just killing just because its a he say she say or he or she ain’t give me this or that it needs to stop you shouldn’t even have weapons on you. Grow up people please the violence needs to stop and yes this is coming from an African american someone who wants their people to stop all the violence and do something with your life.
