Shortly after the traffic stop, the sheriff’s office said Roberts discovered the body of a man inside the trunk. The man, identified as 23-year-old Trevon Quantavius Fields of Roanoke Rapids, suffered apparent gunshot wounds. Investigators later learned he was likely murdered just outside the city limits.

Ralik Robinson, 22, Trevathann Myquan Shearin, 20, Shantron Avondre Person, 20, and Deluntae Jaequon Squire, 23, were all charged with murder, authorities said.

Police detectives called deputies from the sheriff’s office to assist in the investigation, which led to the arrests of the four occupants of the vehicle.

Ralik Robinson, 22; Trevathann Myquan Shearin, 20; Shantron Avondre Person, 20 – all of Roanoke Rapids – and Deluntae Jaequon Squire, 23, of Halifax, were all charged with murder, according to the sheriff’s office.
