Kinston Teen Nabbed In Raleigh For 2010 Murder

A suspect wanted in one Kinston murder and for questioning in another was arrested in Raleigh overnight.

Jerrell Pridgen was arrested for the April murder of Rasheed Jones, a Kinston High School student who was gunned on North Independence Street. Police say the 17-year-old was also wanted for the shooting death of Tyrone Collins.

Pridgen was arrested at a home on Colleton Road in Raleigh around 1:30 a.m.and brought back to Kinston where he's being held without bond.

Two other teens were charged last year for Jones' murder which police said was gang related.
