ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson held a press conference Tuesday, Jan 5. to discuss the first homicide of 2021 in Alamance County.

Three people were charged in connection to a deadly shooting on Durham Street early in the morning of Jan. 4. William Gene Williams III was killed in his home during the robbery, Johnson said.

Johnson said all three suspects are from the Nine Trey Bloods gang in High Point.

Williams III was killed while selling a firearm he had listed on Facebook to the suspects, Johnson said. Isaac Jermaine Weathersby IV examined the firearm Williams III handed him before turning and shooting him and at other witnesses inside Williams III's house, Johnson said. The suspects and Williams III did not know one another prior to the gun sale exchange, Johnson said.

Witnesses gave officials a description of three suspects including the shooter in a blue Nissan Altima. The vehicle was spotted on University Drive in Elon. Elon police attempted to stop it, but the driver refused. A high-speed chase ensued, Johnson said.

The vehicle was later stopped in Greensboro by the Greensboro Police Department. Road spikes were deployed to stop the vehicle, Johnson said. The three suspects attempted to run away, but they were caught, Johnson said.

"Right now, a lot of the crimes committed in our county are coming from areas outside Alamance County," Johnson said.

Johnson promised a task force to prevent criminals from traveling between counties and committing crimes.

"We never get the individuals who cross the line, commit crimes and go back. We are going to pursue those individuals," Johnson said.

Weathersby IV, 19, of High Point, Carlos Demetrius Robert Rogers, 19, of High Point and a 17-year-old in connection with the deadly shooting.

Isaac Jermaine Weathersby IV is charged with the following:

Felony first-degree murder
Felony robbery with a dangerous weapon
Felony larceny of a firearm

Carlos Demetrius Robert Rogers is charged with the following:

Felony conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon
Felony accessory after the fact of felony first-degree murder

Police said the juvenile was charged with felony conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Weathersby has been convicted of multiple felonies in the past, Alamance County Sheriff's Office officials said.
