BRUNSWICK COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) – Deputies in Brunswick County caught an 18-year-old wanted in connection to a murder in Maryland last year.
According to a spokeswoman for the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office, deputies assisted an outside agency with conducting a felony traffic stop on a vehicle occupied by Anton Hosea Elsezy Jr. in the area of Seaside and Old Georgetown roads on Tuesday.
Elsezy was wanted on a first-degree murder charge out of Baltimore County, Maryland for the 2019 shooting death of 18-year-old Tyron Deandre Davis.
On Dec. 4, 2019, Baltimore County Police responded to the parking lot of a business in the 200 block of Back River Neck Road in Essex for a report of gunfire. When officers arrived, they found Davis lying in the parking lot, suffering from a gunshot wound.
He was taken to an area hospital and later died from his injuries.
A week later, investigators charged Elsezy with Davis’ murder.
Elsezy remains in the Brunswick County Detention Center and is awaiting extradition back to Baltimore County, Maryland.
