ROCKINGHAM — A suspect in an incident that left two people dead Sunday afternoon is in custody.

Investigators confirmed that 18-year-old Evann Jaqueez Taylor has been charged with two open counts of murder.

Records show Taylor was booked into the Richmond County Jail at 1:47 a.m. Monday. He is currently being held without bond and has a court appearance scheduled for Dec. 2.

Police responded to 74 Car Wash on East Broad Avenue around 3:45 p.m. Sunday where two male victims were killed.

The RO has not yet obtained the arrest warrant which lists the names of the victims.

The N.C. State Bureau of Investigation assisted the Rockingham Police Department in the case.

Online court records show Taylor has a court appearance for several traffic infractions, including having no operator's license and failing to reduce speed.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
