Double Murder/Suicide – Dead – Ricky Junior Toney (Louisburg, NC)

Ricky Junior Toney3

A preliminary autopsy report suggests that Ricky Junior Toney, one of the suspects in a Dec. 31 double homicide in Franklin County, died of a self-inflicted wound, according to Warren County Sheriff Johnny Williams.

Toney, 34, and his brother, Joey Lamont Kearney, 16, both of Franklin County, led law enforcement officers on a manhunt that covered areas of Franklin and Vance counties before ending in southwestern Warren County.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office was called to a residence on West River Road in Franklinton at 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 31 to the scene of what was believed to be a domestic dispute. According to the sheriff office’s report, there was no answer at the door when deputies arrived. Deputies were able to enter the residence through an unsecured door and found broken glass on the bedroom floor, blood pooling at the base of the bathroom door, and a mirror in the bathroom that appeared to have been shattered by a gunshot.

According to the report, the bodies of a woman and her teenage daughter were found in the bathroom. They later were identified as Akesia Michelle Toney, 37, Ricky Junior Toney’s estranged wife, and Brianna Nicole Jones, 16.

Deputies say the teen helped Toney killed his 37-year-old estranged wife and her 16-year-old daughter at their home in Louisburg early Tuesday morning. The chase started several hours later when Vance County deputies say they spotted Toney in his dead wife’s car.

Killed – Humberto Reyes Florez (Graham, NC)

male

GRAHAM — An arrest and allegations of kidnapping, drug sales and gang activity follow Sunday’s shooting death of a man at a Green Level mobile home park on Sunday.

Alamance County sheriff’s deputies responded to a shooting at 12:35 p.m. Sunday, and found Humberto Reyes Florez dead on the ground near lot No. 22 at Otter Creek Mobile Home Park on East Simpson Road.

Florez, whose first name deputies initially said was Humbertia, had multiple gunshot wounds, deputies said. The 29-year-old was from Texas, but reportedly lived at Otter Creek at times.

A news release from the sheriff’s office gave the following account of events that led to the shooting:

Earlier last week, three people allegedly supplied cocaine to individuals to resell. Authorities said there are allegations that the drug transaction involved members of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel.
There are discrepancies about the amount of money exchanged, but one indication is the deal involved $160,000 worth of narcotics.

Sometime after 7 p.m. Saturday, the father of one of the people receiving the narcotics was kidnapped from an apartment complex on Grace Avenue in Burlington and held for ransom, deputies said.

On Sunday, the kidnap victim’s son and another man reportedly went to Otter Creek Mobile Home Park and returned cocaine to three men, in exchange for the release the father, deputies said.
Authorities said the father was apparently released, but that a confrontation ensued.

One of the three men allegedly fled with the narcotics into the woods and Florez was subsequently shot multiple times.

The shooting suspect and a second man fled the scene in a vehicle.

Authorities have since arrested Humberto Rafael Anzaldo, 18, of 4531 Tangle Ridge Trail, Burlington. He is charged with first-degree kidnapping and trafficking in cocaine. He was released after posting $75,000 bond, Alamance County Jail officials said.

Triple Shooting – Killed – Bryant Deon Williams (Winston-Salem, NC)

male

About a half-hour before a Winston-Salem man was killed in a triple shooting Thursday night, Winston-Salem police were called to his house to investigate a report of shots fired, according to a search warrant filed in the Forsyth County clerk’s office.

Police discovered that a woman and her son had gotten into a fight there over a car and then were asked to leave, the search warrant said. Winston-Salem police received another call about 36 minutes later from that woman saying that people in a burgundy vehicle were shooting at her house and cars, according to the search warrant.

When police arrived, they found Bryant Deon Williams, 28, of 212 Craft Drive dead from a gunshot wound in the driver’s seat of a burgundy 2010 Ford Escape in the front yard of a house in the 500 block of Alspaugh Drive. Two passengers — Razjay Dion Banner, 29, of 212 Craft Drive, and Ronnie Lenard Williams, 24, of 436 S. Sunset Drive — were wounded and taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Banner was shot in the left arm. He was treated and released from the hospital. Ronnie Williams had been listed in stable condition at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. The hospital had no information on him Monday.

Police said in a news release Monday that the shooting stemmed from a previous dispute between Bryant Williams and several other people who know each other.

The shooting happened in the area of 572 Alspaugh Drive around 11 p.m.
