Suspect charged with murder in home invasion

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police and US Marshals arrested a man for murder in connection to a Friday home invasion that left one man dead and sent another to the hospital.
Police say with the help of Marshals task force members, officers arrested Zeer Nifis Cannady, 20, in the 100 block of Meares Street yesterday. Cannady is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder and several counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, among others.
Cannady's arrest comes after a robbery at a home near the intersection of Lilac Court and 13th Street sparked a shooting Friday afternoon. It started when witnesses say three men entered the home there to rob the victims, according to police. After that, Wilmington Police say shots were fired, hitting Aaron McGhee, 47, who later died at the hospital, and Terae Kareen Graham, who was shot in the leg.
Police say because the reports of the crime included three suspects, the investigation is still ongoing. Cannady remains in the New Hanover County Jail under $2 million bond. He was scheduled to make his first court appearance on the charges today.
