Arrest Made In Gang Fight Murder

A 20 year old Nash County man is charged with murder after police say a gang fight turned deadly this weekend.

Rodney Alston of Nashville is accused of killing 19 year old Stanley Howington of Whitakers.

Rocky Mount police say it happened Saturday night during a party on Green Tee Lane.

They say a fight broke out between two rival gangs, the Bloods and the Crips. Detectives says Alston shot into the crowd and struck Howington as he reportedly was trying to separate two people that were fighting.

Alston is in the Nash County jail without bond.
