SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

The Salisbury Police Department say Kevin Rashee Toomer, 24, was arrested in the fatal shooting of Eric Maurice Feamster, 27, which occurred on July 28 at Clancy Hills Apartments.

Toomer was arrested in Richmond Virginia on Friday by Richmond Police.

Salisbury investigators obtained a murder warrant for Toomer on Thursday.

Police say Toomer is in jail under no bond pending transport back to Salisbury.


According to Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins, Salisbury Police Officer, C. Hamm, who was working security at Clancy Hills Apartments Sunday morning, heard shots being fired on the side opposite of the complex from his location.

Within seconds, Officer Hamm reached the area where the shooting had taken place where he found Tyson Gaymon, 25, lying in the breezeway of building 104.  Gaymon had a gunshot wound to his arm and torso.

Officer Hamm immediately called for an ambulance and for other officers to the come to the scene.  Officer Hamm attempted to ask questions of Gaymon.  Gaymon was conscious, but said very little in response. 

Back-up officers arrived minutes later and began securing the scene. 

While doing so, a second victim, 27 year old Eric Maurice Feamster, was discovered in another section of the apartment complex.  Feamster had gunshot wounds to his upper torso area, and it was immediately obvious that his injuries were more severe than those of Mr. Gaymon, according to Chief Collins.

Both victims were taken by EMS to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center for treatment.  While there, doctors and nurses utilized life-saving measures in an effort to save Feamster.  However, after some time of doing so, he was pronounced dead at the Emergency Room.

Gaymon received initial treatment in the Emergency Room but was later transferred to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.  His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Any information can be provided by calling the Salisbury Police Department's main line at 704-638-5333, or by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-JAIL (5245).  These calls can be made anonymously.  A cash reward is possible through Crime Stoppers for useful information given
