Arrest Made In Elkin Ridge Murder

A man wanted for a Greenville homicide has been arrested in Atlanta, Georgia.

Hysuan Daniels was arrested Wednesday by U.S. Marshals.

Daniels was wanted for the December 1st shooting death of Malcolm Washington. Police say Daniels and Washington went to a duplex on Elkin Ridge Road that night with the intentions of robbing a man.

During the robbery Washington was shot once in the back and ultimately collapsed in the front yard of 4104 Elkin Ridge. Daniels is also charged with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Daniels is in jail in Atlanta awaiting his return to Greenville to face charges.

Greenville police say they now have a suspect in another murder, one of four that hit the city in recent weeks.

Hysuan Daniels is now wanted for murder, in addition to attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon. Police say Daniels is not yet in custody.

On December 1st Malcolm Washington was shot and killed in the 4000 block of Elkin Ridge Drive around 10:00 p.m.

Police say the 25-year-old man and at least one other man went to the duplex to rob the person who lived there. During that attempt Washington was shot once in the back and ended up collapsing in the front yard of 4104 Elkin Ridge Drive.

Previous Story

Greenville police have released the name of a man murdered last night in what they say was likely a drug-related murder. It's the third murder in the city in two weeks.

They say Malcolm Washington of Greenville was shot in the 4000 block of Elkin Ridge Drive around 10:00 p.m. Thursday night during an apparent robbery attempt.

Police say the 25-year-old man and at least one other man went to the duplex to rob the person who lived there. During that attempt Washington was shot once in the back and ended up collapsing in the front yard of 4104 Elkin Ridge Drive.

The homeowner there thought a man was having a seizure and called for EMS. Washington died at Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

Police say it appears the robbery was drug related and that there's nothing to indicate the intended robbery victim was involved in the shooting. At this point no one has been charged with Washington's murder.

Washington has a previous criminal record. He was last in prison in 2010 on a drug charge. Other convictions include receiving stolen vehicle, theft of a motor vehicle, and possessing stolen property.

On November 17th Leroy Staton was killed in what police say was also a drug related murder at Jaycee Park. Then three days later Michael Burgwardt was found dead in an office he used at Summer Place Apartments.

No one has been arrested in any of the murders. Washington's death brings to six the number of murders in Greenville for 2011, surpassing last year's total of five.

Elkin Ridge Drive is a cul-de-sac off of Portertown Road, and is made up of duplexes.

Deputy Chief Joe Bartlett told reporters that they are investigating a death at Elkin Ridge Drive, but would not give any details saying it might hinder their investigation.

    You people are so right white people aren't robbing and breaking into houses because you're to busy molesting little kids and smoking crack. And I wish you could see the number of white men riding through the black neighborhoods looking for drunks to have sex with. You white women have no idea.

    Just think ladies; if this was your boyfriend/husband. He comes home from the hospital with a gunshot wound, makes up a phoney story and downplays the whole incident. Then suddenly, he disappears...leaving you on your own. You don't want to believe he'd kill somebody, but you know he carries a gun. How would you feel if he came back home after weeks, demanding you to leave with him and run off. (leaving the kids with relatives/friends)...wouldn't that be thrilling?

      If that was most womens boyfriend/husband like you hypothesize, they would borrow his gun and shoot themselves with it. How miserable a life that would be hanging out with loser like that.

    ToJ,angry I'm not,disgusted I am,with my own race.However the difference is white crime is not talked about,like black crime.I assure you,it is prevalent. Take the time to comment on those stories as well.That's my point.Check out Pitt County Detention website.I am appalled at my race,they are to ignorant to see what is going on.My race is killing itself off,the white race kill anybody,that's the difference. We need to step up and take responsibility and come up with a solution, not making it a mockery.The fact is our country is in a crisis and no one seems to care.Again not angry just disgusted and outraged by what is going on in society. Note:I love all races,love has no color in my eyes.We all bleed and die the same.Have a good day and be blessed.

      Tell that crock to Eve Carson or the Duke student that was killed. Tell that to Dept. "Sneek" Lewis and the others killed.

      Sounds racist to me "the white race kill anybody" - Seriously? Seen any news lately about Eve Carson? Sneak Lewis? You have every right to be appalled but not at your race or the "white race" ..but at sorry good for nothing people that need a tougher justice system and less hand outs. white,black,latino,asian AND that is the REST of the STORY!

    This comment is for J,angry I am not.I'm just disgusted with society as a whole.Whites are committing crimes, it's not publicized like black crimes are.Check Pitt County Detention web site. So do not attempt to mock me,it doesn't move me one bit...Like I said comment on all crimes, not just those of black crimes. No,I am not prejudice, some of my best friends are white.As I stated earlier,color is irrelevant to me.Also,we all came about because of Adam and Eve.God created only two at the beginning,whom begot,and begot.So you need to read up on your Bible,starting at Genesis. The Bible will stand when all else fails.To dispute is ignorance.Start living by it and a change will start happening.You have a good day and be blessed.

    Again, I am a black man, and I am sick and tired of these thugs running around Greeneville. I am an ordinary citizen, I work, married, and pay taxes. Is that so hard? I hate it when my fellow African Americans, try to justify black crime. It is not my responsibility or the state's to raise and watch your kids!

    Here we go again.The majority of you people posting, are the one's throwing racial slurs or making it a white and black issue.Yet at the same time,never mentioning the whites that are committing crimes and murder.Seem like your mind goes blank on those crime's. When you speak, do it on facts and not insinuations.The black generation is basically killing their self off.They are to ignorant to realize that the white people could care less.That is obvious with a lot of these posts.Your race,whites just enjoy killing there parents,children, police officers, shoot up co-workers,classmates etc.the list goes on ,but no one wants to talk about that.Get the speck out your races eyes before,you try to chastise another race.Crime is crime and murder is murder,no matter the race,and should be punished equally.For those talking about dreads are totally ignorant. Your hair has nothing to do with being a criminal.Nobody has respect for their peers anymore. They have no fear of authority or God.It's really sad,what society has broke.No one seems to care,all they want to do is point fingers at each other.Everything that is happening, the Bible speaks of,you're just to blind to see it.Start praying and stop beating up each other.This is all our problem, not just one race.If I've stepped on toes,so be it.The truth will stand when all else fails.By the way,the victim they intended to rob was not the shooter.Go back and read the story again.Obviously a lot of you misread the story.Be blessed and remember God is love.

      I don't see any of those crimes happening around Greenville, NC. In fact you are just angered and want to throw the white demographic under the bus. Look around at the provided resources. The whites aren't in the jail bookings for murder or robbery. If you do find on then its an occasional to rare occurrence. What you do find and hear on the news every week is the African American community in Greenville, NC getting busted for murders, robberies, and drug related charges. The black community are troubled and statistically problematic. That's not saying all blacks are bad, there are bad batches for every race. Though that is irrelevant. If you want to call from facts, then look at the numbers, the statistics aren't lying to you. Awareness is clearly an issue here.
