WILLIAMSBORO — A woman sought in connection with a fatal shooting that happened on Oct. 30 at Williamboro’s main crossroads is now in custody, Vance County Sheriff Curtis Brame said.

Tiara Zhane Seaward, 27, turned herself in “on or about” Friday, and was held without bond in the Vance County Jail, Brame said.

Seaward’s arrest came three days after the sheriff’s office announced that it had obtained warrants charging her with first-degree murder, and issued a wanted bulletin to seek information from the public on her whereabouts.

That move, and the arrest, came as deputies continue to investigate the shooting at the intersection of N.C 39 and Thomas Road that left Devonte Cheek dead and another man wounded.

The incident happened outside the Shell station at the Williamsboro crossroads. One man, Devonte Cheek, was pronounced dead later at Maria Parham Health in Henderson. A second man was wounded but was expected to survive.

Authorities previously said they believe Cheek was getting out of a vehicle when “unknown subjects” in a dark-colored sedan opened fire from the intersection, and that Cheek was shot as he stood in the gas station’s parking lot. The assailants fled north along N.C. 39.

On Friday, Brame said Cheek “was shot and killed during a confrontation” that “unfolded in the parking lot” of the gas station.

Seaward has a 2018 conviction on her record on a charge of burning personal property. She received probation, but as of Friday the N.C. Department of Public Safety said in its online database that she was an absconder from supervision.
