Police: Suspects armed and dangerous

Published 4:31pm Saturday, April 13, 2013

The Selma Police Department sent a message to the media late Friday evening simply titled “wanted persons.” And, in the midst of the message, the department classified each of the four people wanted as both “armed and dangerous.”

Three of the wanted suspects are the three remaining suspects sought in shootings on Hardie Avenue in mid-March.

Darryl Dewayne Johnson, William Earl Calhoun and Lamarious Prince are each wanted for attempted murder and two counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling.

There was a total of seven suspects tied to this shooting. Four have already been taken into custody and are scheduled for preliminary hearings later this month.

The fourth suspect listed in Friday’s department release is 19-year-old Edward Jerome Burn.

Burn is wanted for first-degree assault, first-degree attempted robbery and discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

The charges stem from a March incident at the intersection of Washington Street and Griffin Avenue, where Burns is believed to have been involved in a traffic accident that led to the shooting of a Selma man.

According to Lt. Johnny King, with the Selma Police Department, Burn reportedly attempted to rob the driver of the other vehicle in the accident at gunpoint.

“When the victim refused to hand over anything, Burn then shot the victim in the upper left torso,” King said. “The victim then got into his vehicle and drove away. At that time, Burn then allegedly shot multiple times at the car.”

King said the victim was driven to Vaughan Regional Medical Center and has recovered from his injuries.

Burn is described as being 5-foot, 9-inches tall, 150 pounds with a medium complexion and black hair.

“We are asking for the public’s help in finding these individuals,” King said. “We need to get these individuals off the street.”

King asked that if anyone has information on the whereabouts of these four wanted persons, to please call either 911 or the Selma Police Department at 874-6611.
