RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A second man has been arrested in a shooting in North Carolina’s capital city.

Raleigh police spokeswoman Laura Hourigan said in a news release Thursday that 19-year-old Eric Lamont Dillard was arrested on charges of armed robbery and conspiracy.

Eighteen-year-old Cresyan Tyrek Scurlock was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder, armed robbery and conspiracy.

Officers were called to a shooting late Tuesday and found 21-year-old Taheem Ivory Lassiter, who was taken to a Raleigh hospital where he died.

Investigators have not released a possible motive in the shooting. It was not known if Dillard and Scurlock have attorneys yet.
