BERTIE COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - Two men are wanted for that deadly shooting at a high school graduation party this past weekend.

Bertie County Sheriff John Holley says David Demery, 36, of Lewiston is wanted for the actual murder, while Larry Bridgett, 26, from Kelford, is wanted for being an accessory after the fact.

The sheriff says Demery was developed as a suspect shortly after the shooting of James White.

The 26-year-old White was shot and killed while standing in the yard of the home south of Windsor around 8:00 p.m.Saturday.

Deputies say numerous family members were celebrating the graduation of two people when a fight broke out. Several family members tried to break up the dispute, but deputies say Demery ended up firing a gun, hitting White.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the two men should call the Bertie County Sheriff’s Office.
