FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

A man wanted in connection with a kidnapping and murder on Sept. 1 is also charged in connection with a separate shooting in August.

Fayetteville Police are searching for Anthony Solomon Porter, 26, is charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon in a warrant issued in Raleigh. The charges stem from the kidnapping and murder of 27-year-old Errol Williams on Sunday.

On Thursday, police charged Porter with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury in connection with a shooting that occurred on Aug. 18 along the 1800 block of Conover Drive.

Police say additional warrants may be forthcoming.

Porter is suspected to be involved with Williams' Sept. 1 murder. Police say three Fayetteville men are accused of kidnapping Williams from the parking lot of a convenience store at Bragg Boulevard and Shaw Road around 4:45 a.m.

Police say they forced him to drive about a mile away where they shot and killed him.

Kelly Eugene Elliot, 31, is believed to be the triggerman in the crime. He's charged with first degree murder, two counts of first degree kidnapping, and robbery with a dangerous weapon. He is also believed to be the man seen in surveillance video at the crime scene.

Eric Lamont Phillips, 31, was arrested at his home Tuesday on charges of drug possession and possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with the crime.

Both Porter and Elliot are on the lam.

Fayetteville Police Chief Harold Medlock said police are investigating the possibility that the men were involved in an incident early Friday where a man was shot to death outside Chief's 25 Plus nightclub on Rowan Street. In that case, police say a shootout erupted when victims of an attempted armed robbery pulled out their own guns and opened fire.

Derrick Morrisey, 37, of Raeford, who was walking a woman to her car, was hit and killed by a stray bullet, according to police.

Medlock said the men should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information concerning the whereabouts of Anthony Solomon Porter are asked to call the Fayetteville Police Department at (910) 433-1690 or Crimestoppers at (910) 483-TIPS.
