Prosecutors: 2nd person arrested in trooper’s death

WHITEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Prosecutors say a second person has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper during a traffic stop last week.

The Columbus County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement Tuesday that a second suspect has been arrested in the shooting death of Trooper Kevin Conner. District Attorney Jon David planned a news conference on Tuesday to provide more information.

Conner, an 11-year veteran of the patrol, stopped a pickup truck last week on suspicion of speeding on a highway in rural Columbus County southwest of Whiteville. Patrol First Sgt. Michael Baker said the driver shot Conner as he approached.

Raheem Cole Dashanell Davis, a 20-year-old from Chadbourn, was later apprehended. He’s charged with first-degree murder.
