GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Police say they have made an arrest in a murder that happened Wednesday night in Greenville.

Carlos Cox, 18, has been charged with the murder of Idn Arrington.

Police were called to the 1900 block of Kennedy Circle shortly before 8:00 p.m. for the report of shots fired. They then found the 17-year-old’s body.

Kennedy Circle is a block north of J.H. Rose High School and a block south of South Greenville Elementary School.

Police said the teenager died inside the home and that a short time later they stopped Cox’s vehicle in the area of Davenport Street.

The man’s bond was set at $2 million.

It’s not the first shooting in that neighborhood. On May 14, 2021, a 17-year-old boy was shot in the abdomen on Kennedy Circle, not far from the elementary school.
