Roanoke County police are seeking a fourth suspect in a shooting incident that resulted in the death of a woman last month.
Andrew Arthur Jeffers is charged with principal in the second degree robbery and principal in the second degree burglary with the intent to commit robbery, police said. Police were still searching for him Monday afternoon.
Jeffers is described as a white male, 6 feet 4 inches tall, 285 pounds, with blue eyes and shaved blond hair.
Jeffers is one of four people wanted in connection with an incident leading to the death of 35-year-old Amber C. Ross of Franklin County, who died after being shot at a house on Overland Drive in the Cave Spring area amid what police have said was a robbery gone wrong.
Multiple people were in a house on May 19 when two male suspects barged in with the intent to commit a robbery, police have said.
An altercation broke out between a resident of the house and one of the suspects, who pulled out a handgun, which was discharged and struck Ross. Two males and another woman, Shamby Marie Walker, fled. Police have said Ross, Walker and the two male suspects knew each another.
Jeffers’ alleged role in the incident is unclear.
Aaron Rashad Witcher, 27, and a 17-year-old boy, both of Roanoke, have been arrested. Witcher is charged with second-degree murder, burglary with intent to commit robbery, robbery with a firearm, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, police said. The juvenile, who has not been identified, has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder, burglary with the intent to commit robbery and robbery.
Police also are still searching for Walker, a white female in her mid-30s with brown hair and blue eyes, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 280 pounds. She’s charged with principal in the second to second-degree murder, principal in second-degree robbery, principal in second-degree burglary with intent to commit robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit burglary, police said.
