Sgt Phillip Dale Nix of the Greensboro Police Department was shot at a Sheetz convenience store and gas station on Saturday at around 4 p.m. Aid was quickly given by an on-duty police officer and a paramedic, but Nix was rushed to a hospital where he passed away.

John Walter Morrison, 28, Z’quriah Le’Pearce Blackwell, 18, and Jamere Justice Foster, 18, are the accused charged.

Foster is accused of stealing more than $83 worth of beer, according to warrants acquired by the local FOX affiliate WGHP-TV. The GPD has not disclosed the exact offence the suspects are accused of doing before the altercation.

Foster faces charges of larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny and first-degree murder. According to a social media statement by the police, he is being held without bond.

Blackwell is being jailed on a $500,000 bond and is accused of first-degree murder accessory after the fact.

Morrison faces charges of larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, and accessory after the fact to first-degree murder. There is no bond placed on him.

According to the department, Nix worked for the city of Greensboro for 23 years. “A loving husband, father, son, and brother,” is how they characterise him. His most recent position was assistant team commander of the GPD Honour Guard and supervisor of the Family Victims Unit.

“We ask that all parties respect the family’s privacy in this difficult time and more information about donations to the family will be shared on our social media pages in the coming days,” GPD wrote on Facebook.

There can be more charges in the works since the investigation is ongoing.
