Durham, N.C. Heavily armed Durham police, surrounding a house before dawn Thursday, captured the second of two men charged with murder in the shooting of the student body president at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Lawrence Alvin Lovette Jr., 17, surrendered to officers from the department's Selective Enforcement Team outside a house on Cook Road at 4:16 a.m. Police had surrounded the house hours before after receiving an anonymous tip through the Durham County Sheriff's Office

Is he the guy who was in the back seat of the car at the ATM machine?
Talk about stupid criminals. Surveillance cameras all over the place, and they go to the ATM machine virtually undisguised.
No- the one in the backseat is the one they got yesterday. The driver is the one they nabbed this morning.
Yes, you’re right. Very obvious. I am so glad they got these guys and I’m so thankful the police in Alabama got the murderer of Lauren Burk.
I suppose the older one let the 17 yo do the killing knowing full well he would not get the death penalty because he’s just a child! Thank you Supreme Court.
So were either of these young men starving, or homeless, or in depair? Both committed crimes before and were treated very leniently by this justice system that is so unfair to blacks, we hear. They are driven to crime because of poverty and hopelessness. I guess they thought they would be set for life by taking this student’s money.
It just makes me so sick.
Well somehow the wheels of justice don’t roll quite that quickly....and they will not get the death penalty because there is no death penalty right now in NC (not by law but because the NC med association refuses to agree to having a physician at the executions....so all executions have been on hold....for months). (and I wouldn’t go to that stadium event...but I think the parents and friends of Eve should just be given access to the perps for a few minutes.....)
Give them a fair trial. Assuming they are convicted, erect a gallows in downtown Chapel Hill, and have a public hanging. Leave their bodies hanging for 24 hours for all to see.
Finally the Durham police come through...with the help of the Chapel Hill police, the SBI, and the FBI....and whatever tipster decided to throw this “friend” under the bus....for the reward.
And thanks to me too - I am a NC taxpayer some of whose money went towards this reward since it was paid for by UNC....funded by taxpayers. For once a good use of taxpayer dollars, IMHO.
DP in NC?
The problem is....after a fair trial....no harm will come to either of them for a long time...just “hard time” in prison......
The stories have already begun...Lovette’s grandmother is such a sweet lady and Lovette was seen shooting baskets at her house thousands of times (say neighbors)...from yesterday’s reports.
I am sorry for this sweet grandmother.
Her grandson is a devoid killer who is bound not only for a lifetime in prison (if he’s lucky) but for an eternity in hell....
DP? Durham Police?
No mention of gang relationships yet by the reporters....
But FR posters saw the 2nd person in the car at the ATM early in the initial postings on this topic.
And I simply claimed that my bet was the suspects were from Durham....the festering cesspool of criminal activity that overflows its sewage into neighboring towns like Chapel Hill, Raleigh, etc....and that has proven to be true.
Another poster said - the earlier criminal history of both suspects would have likely occurred under (at least partly) the reign of that previous Durham “prosecutor” who spent so much time going after the Duke LaCross non-criminals.....perps like this probably got very little attention...
They killed her because they are everything she was not.
great! Keep the scumbag off the streets for good
