The former ECU football player was found shot and killed in the parking lot of the Bahama Breeze restaurant on Wake Forest Road on June 23.

People having dinner inside the restaurant told ABC11 they heard five to 10 gunshots in the back corner of the parking lot.

"We saw people running in the parking lot, so they were scattering," said Linda Graham. "We saw a couple guys, one went in one direction, the other went in the other direction."

Spellman and Jackson are each being held in jail on a $1 million bail.
