A 17 year old linked to a double murder in Fayetteville was arrested overnight following a standoff with police.

On Tuesday night, detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department's Homicide Unit went to a home on Pickerel Street to question Rashawn Javonte Hill about the death of a man and woman at the Cambridge Arms Apartments on Monday night.

Isaiah Manuel Sampeur, 25, and Pamela Ann Coe, 40, were fatally shot during an altercation after answering the door to an unidentified suspect, according to investigators.

On Tuesday, when detectives went inside Hill's home to question him, authorities said they heard the sound of a shotgun being racked. They said the suspect then fired a single shot as officers began walking down a hallway.

A detective then fired one round at the suspect. No one was injured.

Officers negotiated with Hill to surrender and arrested him.

He is currently facing two counts of 1st-degree murder and two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon charges in connection with Sampeur and Coe's deaths. He is being held at the Cumberland County Jail without bond.

Hill is believed to be a student at South View High School.

Detectives say 19-year-old Albert Lamont Jackson turned himself in late Wednesday for questioning regarding the shooting deaths of Sampeur and Coe.

They say, although Jackson was only sought for questioning regarding the double homicide, he had active warrants for assault with a deadly weapon, simple assault and communication of threats.

The investigation into the double murder continues.
