CARTHAGE -- A robbery victim shot and
killed one of four men who held him up Saturday as the robbers were trying to
get away, the Moore County Sheriff’s Office said.
The robbers showed up at a mobile home park off
Wright Road in Vass and pretended to be looking for someone, said Sgt. Chuck
Ferguson. They talked with Robert Anthony Eberhart and Alicia Gilchrist, who
were at a home on Jolinda Road.
Once the men were inside the home, they pulled
out a handgun and took jewelry and $75 from Eberhart and Gilchrist, the
Sheriff’s Office said. Gilchrist had her 1-year-old son with her.
When the men were leaving, Eberhart grabbed a
gun from inside the home, ran out and shot one of the men in the neck. Jaton
Armont Simpson, who was 18 and lived on Vass Road in Spring Lake, died a short
time later at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital.
On Sunday, deputies arrested two other men
suspected of participating in the robbery: Terrell Lamar Jefferson, who is 20,
and Patrick Legrant Geddie, who is 23.
Prosecutors had not determined by Monday
afternoon whether they had reason to charge Eberhart. Eberhart could not be
reached for comment.
Geddie and Jefferson are charged with two
counts each of armed robbery and second-degree kidnapping. Investigators also
charged Geddie, who lives on the 5400 block of Mesa Drive in Fayetteville, with
conspiracy to commit armed robbery, assault by pointing a gun and assault with a
deadly weapon, according to arrest reports.
Jefferson lives on the 1000 block of Riverside
Circle in Spring Lake, reports said.
Bail for each was set at $300,000 bail.

KeepAndBearArms.com Note: In many
states, going outside of your home after home invading scumbags have left and
then shooting one of the little parasites will land you in prison. One man
who chased his attacker for 300 yards and then killed him recently got off with
probation. His attorney argued that his beating left him in a confused state,
and the judge surprisingly ruled in his favor. Regardless, our urging is to make
sure you get them in your home if you're going to shoot them. We also state in
plain English that we feel no pain over the death of the above miscreant. The
fact that he won't be breeding -- or doing it again -- is a good thing.
