ROWLAND — A 21-year-old Rowland man has been arrested in Georgia and charged with a murder that occurred Thanksgiving Day at a Rowland home.
Police Chief John Reaves said U.S. marshals arrested Glenn Marquee Brown, of 377 Benson Chapel Road, at about 6 p.m. on Tuesday in DeKalb County, Ga.. He said police followed leads to the home of one of Brown’s relatives, where Brown was found and arrested.
According to Reaves, Brown is charged with killing John Arthor McDaniel, 30, who was shot multiple times with a 12-gauge shotgun about 11:30 on Thanksgiving Day and died shortly thereafter.
On Wednesday afternoon, Brown was being held in the DeKalb County jail. Reaves said he expects that Brown will be extradited to North Carolina soon and held at the Robeson County jail.
Police believe that McDaniel was fatally shot following an argument at a West Jackson Street home. Reaves said there were “multiple witnesses” but that additional details remain sketchy.
“We don’t really know what happened,” Reaves said. “Right now there are several different stories being told.”
Reaves said investigators were still conducting interviews on Wednesday.
Reaves said several local and state agencies were assisting in the investigation.
“I would like to thank the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Investigative Unit — who responded to the scene — the Rowland Police Department and the State Bureau Investigation,” Reaves said.
“Along with the U.S. Marshal Service, we came together as a team, which led to the successful arrest,” he said.
Brown has a lengthy criminal history that includes possession of crack cocaine with the intent to sell and deliver, assault, resisting arrest, and felony possession of a firearm.
