One person is in custody after two people were pronounced dead Wednesday night and a child found with life-threatening injuries at an apartment complex in Lexington.
Next-door neighbors say there was blood on the steps at an apartment unit off Burgess Street. They also say there was blood on the gravel next to it.
As of now, the stairs have been cleaned.
Lexington Police have arrested 54-year-old Brian Keith Moses of Winston-Salem after they say two men were found dead inside.
“This man did not deserve that,” said Octavia Silei, the neighbor who lives next door.
The victims have been identified as 61-year-old Robert Stowe and 56-year-old Lionel Coker.
Neighbors say the scene last night was just smoky. That’s when they say they heard bullets.
“Literally, that’s next door,” Silei said. “The bullets could have came through the wall or anything.”
Speaking of one of the victims, Silei says he was loved in the community.
“You could be walking down the street, oh you need something to eat, oh come and get you a plate, that was the kind of guy he was,” she said.
A 911 caller told police that blood was on the steps and a gun was in the parking lot.
The Lexington Police Department says officers responded to the apartment to assist the Lexington Fire Department with the crime and forced their way in.
“As the officers went into the apartment, they immediately encountered smoke,” said Police Chief Robby Rummage. “They they made their way through the apartment to look at what’s going on and they saw two adults in the apartment with obvious traumatic injuries.”
Police say the fire started from the stove. It was not a structure fire.
We’re told officers also found a 3-year-old girl inside the unit suffering from traumatic injuries.
“They grabbed that young child and ran out the door and ran up the street to where Lexington firefighters were sitting there waiting,” the chief said. “They immediately started rendering first aid.”
Officers say they worked with the Winston-Salem Police Department to locate the suspect, Brian Moses’ home, where his vehicle was.
They say it matched the description that a Burgess Street resident gave them.
“This was senseless violence that at this point some of the reasons behind this are unknown.” Chief Rummage said.
Authorities say it was not uncommon for Moses to visit the home as he was an acquaintance the residents. They say the shooting was not random and Moses is the only suspect.
“I saw the gun,” Silei said. “The gun was laying in the gravel with a puddle of blood with eye glasses and a remote.”
Silei says she’s looking for a new place to live and says she’s still trying to process the incident.
“You could tell that he was struggling, that he was fighting, that he was defending himself,” she said.
Now, the 3-year-old girl is still at a N.C. Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem recovering with her parents by her side, Lexington Police say.
The suspect Brian Moses has been charged with two counts of murder, arson, robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm by felon.
He will be booked at the Davidson County jail.
