Leonard Earl Williams, 23, surrendered to police about 2 p.m. Thursday and was charged with the shooting death of 21-year-old Dontae Montrel Haddock of Ayden, according to a news release issued by the Greenville Police Department. Williams is charged with one open count of murder, attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill. Earlier in the day, Greenville Interim Police Chief Joe Bartlett said Broderick Stephan Harris, 23, and George Herman Perry Jr., 27, both of Greenville, were charged with accessory after the fact in the slaying. Haddock was shot about 1:34 a.m. Saturday near the intersection of Evans and Fourth streets. He was transported to Vidant Medical Center, where he later died. One other person was shot, and two others were injured in the shooting, Bartlett said. He said their injuries were not life-threatening. Detectives said they believe both Harris and Perry assisted, Williams, with escape and evasion from police after the shooting occurred, the release said. Bartlett said he was unsure of Haddocks’ relationship with the men but said the incident was gang-related. Harris, Perry and Williams are associated with the Crips gang, he said. Bartlett said police have reason to believe Haddock was associated with the Bloods street gang. The three suspects have prior records, Bartlett said. A state records database shows Harris was released earlier this year after a one-and-a-half year incarceration period for charges of common law robbery and assault on a female. Records show Perry previously was on probation after larceny charges in 2002 and 2008. Williams also previously was on probation after being charged in 2008 with possession of drug paraphernalia. Harris was jailed under a $1 million secured bond, and Perry was jailed under a $250,000 secured bond.
