HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — North Carolina authorities are still on the hunt for a 17-year-old suspect facing charges in the double murder of Devin Clark, 18, and Lyric Woods, 14, over the weekend.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday announced that it had filed a petition to charge the juvenile suspect with two counts of first-degree murders in Clark’s and Woods’ shooting deaths.

“The suspect has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. While that obviously speaks for itself, this was not a random act,” sheriff’s office public information officer Alicia Stemper told Fox News Digital when asked if there remains a threat to the public.

“Through the hard work of my investigators, along with the assistance of personnel from many other law enforcement agencies, we have identified a suspect in this case,” Sheriff Charles Blackwood said in a Tuesday statement. “We will now work with local, state and federal authorities to apprehend and present the suspect to the court system.”

As of Wednesday afternoon, the suspect was still at large, according to the sheriff’s office.

ABC 11 reports:

Woods was a freshman at Cedar Ridge High School. She played volleyball on a travel team.

Some of her friends played on the Cedar Ridge High School volleyball team. That team is dedicating its game Tuesday night against Jordan High School.


Devin Clark was a senior at Eastern Alamance High School. His favorite number was four, and that’s why his nickname was Deuce Two Times.

His mother said a memorial in his honor was being planned for Thursday. Plans for his funeral are also still being discussed.
