The Sanford Police Department said Monday that a 17 year old is behind a fatal shooting earlier this month.

Detectives have charged Timothy Dequan Thompson of High Point with first-degree murder, possession of a handgun by a minor, and obstruction of justice.

Police said Thompson shot 31-year-old Stacey Morrison to death December 8 on Goldsboro Avenue.

Thompson was already in jail on unrelated charges when detectives served him with the new warrants.

He remains behind bars without bond.
