Fugitive arrested in Davidson County home invasion

Deputies were called to a home invasion in the Thomasville area. Two suspects were caught at the scene. Another got away but was later captured.

DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — The Davidson County Sheriff's Office said a third suspect in a home invasion is in custody. 

The sheriff's office issued an alert about a felon on the run late Thursday night. A search began after a break-in was reported on the 100 block of Panther Ln. in the Thomasville area.

As deputies pulled up to the house, Keyon Canty tried to escape officers in a car. He crashed the vehicle on Lower Lake Rd., according to the report. Canty hopped out and escaped on foot, deputies said. However, after an extensive search of the surrounding area, he was found and arrested early Friday morning.

Two other suspects, Shalik Naquan White and Zachary Deontra Kearns, were arrested while still inside the house. Investigators said all suspects have been accounted for and no one else is at large. 

Four people were found safe inside the house with minor injuries, DCSO said. 

Investigators found and seized an AR-15 rifle at the house. Deputies believe the suspects fired the weapon to intimidate the people inside the house. 

White, Kearns and Canty all face multiple charges and a $1 million bond at the Davidson County Jail.

UPDATE: The third suspect has been captured! All persons involved have been accounted for and no one is at large. Sleep...
