A suspect linked to two shooting incidents in Harnett County is being held today on a $1.5 million bond. Marquis Deveonta Judd, 20, of Broadway, NC is charged with the unrelated incidents.
On September 10th around 12:57am, Harnett County Sheriff’s Detective J. Teasley was traveling in an unmarked patrol car on Rosser Pittman Road near McDougald Road when his cruiser was struck twice by bullets. Detective Teasley was responding to a death investigation call at the time. He requested assistance in locating the suspect but no one was found at the scene. The officer was not injured.
On October 28th around 7:00am, deputies responded to a shooting into an occupied residence on Independence Way. The homeowner showed officers where three bullets were fired into the front of his home. Witness statements and evidence gathered at the scene immediately linked Marquis Judd to the incident. He was later linked to shooting at the sheriff’s detective.
Judd has been charged with two counts of discharging a weapon into a moving vehicle, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon on a government official and possession of a firearm by a felon for the September shooting. Bail on those charges has been set at $1 million.
Judd was given an additional $500,000 bond for charges stemming from the October shooting. Those charges include discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling and possession of a firearm by a felon. The homeowner was not injured in the incident.
