LILLINGTON, N.C. – Two men have been arrested in connection with a shooting that took the lives of two brothers in Harnett County this past June. The Harnett County Sheriff’s Office announced that 21-year-old Caleb Xavier Henderson and 20-year-old Rasool Mubarak Husain Jr. are in custody.
Authorities have charged both men with two counts of first-degree murder, first-degree forcible burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon, and conspiracy to robbery with a dangerous weapon. The shooting resulted in the death of 22-year-old Joshua Tyler Holland and critical injuries to his 15-year-old brother, Quinton Jones.
Sheriff Wayne Coats revealed that the brothers’ grandparents were asleep at the time of the shooting. Both men were denied bond by a Harnett County judge and are scheduled to appear in court again on January 23.

The Harnett County Sheriff’s Office emphasized that the investigation is ongoing and urged anyone with information to come forward. The community and law enforcement officials are hoping for justice to be served as the legal process unfolds.
