Male, 20, dead in Clarksville shooting; two arrested (UPDATED)

Hayleigh Hylton / July 18, 2019
A shooting in Clarksville has left one person dead and two others in custody.

Clarksville Police arrested Hayleigh Hylton and an unnamed juvenile following the Wednesday afternoon shooting death of Anthony Raequan Roberts, 20, of Clarksville.

The exact nature of the charges against Hylton and the juvenile has not been disclosed. Hylton is being held at Meherrin River Regional Jail, pending her initial court appearance, which Mecklenburg County Commonwealth’s Attorney Allen Nash said had not been set as of Thursday afternoon.

Nash added that it will be up to a judge to determine if the juvenile suspect will be charged and tried as an adult. Nash did not speculate on the nature of the charges for either suspect.

A spokesperson for the Clarksville Police said so far, they have no motive for the shooting, which remains under investigation.

Details are scant, but Clarksville Police Sgt. Tim Garner confirmed that the shooting took place on Seventh Street in Clarksville Wednesday afternoon. Roberts had been visiting with family at his grandmother’s house but had left the property moments before he was shot.

This is an ongoing story and will be updated as information becomes available.
