WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – A Wilmington man already jailed for murder in connection with a deadly shooting in 2013 is now facing charges for a separate shooting.
Deshaun Montell Clarida, 25, was charged on Wednesday with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and discharging a firearm in a reckless manner.
Police say Williams was shot while he was a passenger on a scooter that was being pursued by a vehicle. Williams died at the scene. The driver of the scooter was not injured.
Past news releases from the Wilmington Police Department identified Clarida as a validated 720 gang member. Police documents show Clarida reportedly confessed to being involved in Williams’ murder in a phone call to an unidentified woman, who then called police back in 2013.
Clarida remains in the New Hanover County Jail under no bond.
