Nephews of two men previously arrested and charged in the shooting death of a Roanoke Rapids man at Windchase Apartments last month are wanted in the crime.

Roanoke Rapids police are looking for Travon Darius Brown, 23, and Tyquan Tavious Brown, 21.

Police Chief Bobby Martin said the nephews frequent the Roanoke Rapids area and its downtown section.

Martin declined immediate comment on the circumstances that led to the January 16 shooting death of Curtis Graham as well as the alleged involvement of four members of the Brown family. “At this time I don’t want to make comments on their actual involvement that have led us to obtain warrants on them.”

Martin did confirm the nephews were reportedly active participants in the shooting death of Graham.

Brothers Jonathan Brown, 33, and Joshua Brown, 34, both surrendered to law enforcement last month — Jonathan to the Roanoke Rapids Police Department and Joshua to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office several days before Jonathan surrendered.

Jonathan Brown faces charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder and Joshua faces a charge of conspiracy to commit murder.

Roanoke Rapids police detectives have obtained warrants on the nephews for murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

The shooting death of Graham occurred the evening of January 16 shortly before 11:30.

Officers responded to the apartment complex after receiving a call a person had been shot. 

Officers located a person who had been shot multiple times and was unresponsive. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the police department at 252-533-2810; Investigator D. Moore at 252-533-2819 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
