Greenville Police have charged two people in connection to a fatal shooting on Saturday evening that left a 19-year-old man dead.
30-year-old Billy Earl Grizzard III of Simpson has been charged with an open count of murder for the shooting death of 19-year-old Seth Nicholas Street, of Greenville.
Grizzard’s girlfriend, 30-year-old Kellie Anne Moseley, has been charged with accessory after the fact in connection to the crime. Greenville Police said in a release on Sunday that Street, Grizzard, and Moseley knew each other.
Street was shot and killed in the parking lot of the Harris Teeter, located at 2120 E. Fire Tower Road, shortly before 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Several shots were fired, according to Anne Chapman, who was across Charles Boulevard in the Food Lion parking lot. She heard the shots then went inside the store to buy some ice cream and soda.
She exited the store a few minutes later, saw emergency response vehicles and drove into the Harris Teeter lot to investigate, she said. People were trying to help a man on the ground, she said.
“I saw them working on the man over there,” said Chapman, who lives nearby. “I’m just trying to figure out what happened, whether it had something to do with the ATM or something.”
The incident occurred near the Bank of America ATM. A man took off his shirt to try to stop the blood, police said at the scene. He was among several witnesses questioned.
“They took him to the hospital pretty quick,” Chapman said. “They took him off as soon as I got over here.”
Police cordoned off the section of the parking lot near the ATM and blocked a portion of Fire Tower Road. Greenville Police Department officers along with Pitt County Sheriff’s Office deputies and an ATF officer were among responders.
A news release from the department said an off-duty Greenville officer was first to arrive on the scene and discovered a 19-year-old suffering from a gunshot wound.
Detectives quickly identified the shooter and his accomplice and coordinated with neighboring law enforcement agencies to locate them.
Late Saturday night, Grizzard and Moseley were arrested by the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.
Moseley is in the Pitt County Detention Center under a $200,000 bond, while Grizzard is at Vidant Medical Center.
The case remains under investigation and additional charges are likely. Anyone who may have witnessed the shooting is asked to call Greenville Police Detective Verdin at 329-4168.
