Sep. 15—ST. PAULS — St. Pauls Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of a 26-year-old man wanted in connection to a July 25 shooting at the BP gas station on West Broad Street.

The St. Pauls Police Department announced Wednesday that a reward for information leading to the arrest of Daquan McNair, of East Armfield Street in St. Pauls, for his alleged involvement in a vehicle shooting at Happy Mart #3. The amount of the reward was not disclosed.

McNair is wanted for discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Waltay Jackson faced the same charge in connection with the shooting. On Aug. 18, Jackson surrendered at the Robeson County Sheriff's Office and was placed in the Robeson County Detention Center under a $35,000 bond, according to the police department.

"The men missed shooting the driver of the car by inches," according to SPPD.

McNair is out on bond for the discharging a firearm in city limits charge. He was arrested July 27 and jailed under a $2,000 unsecured bond. He was released after satisfying the conditions of the bond, according to a Detention Center official.

He was charged with carrying a concealed firearm, a rifle, and possession of marijuana after a July 10 vehicle stop on East Armfield Street in St. Pauls, according to the police department.

McNair also made bond after being held under a $300,000 secured bond for first-degree murder, discharging a weapon into occupied property and conspiracy to discharge weapon in occupied property, according to the Detention Center.

The first-degree murder charge stems from the Oct. 22, 2019, shooting death of 20-year-old Tyrease McCray, of 174 Maple Leaf Drive in St. Pauls, which occurred at 501 E. Chapel St. in St. Pauls.
