GATES COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — Deputies in Gates County say they have made a second arrest in a 2015 homicide.
The second suspect, Geral Bass, was arrested Wednesday night. Bass is charged in the robbery and shooting death of Calvin Bell Jr.
Bell’s body was found in a field off of NC-37 in Hobbsville back in June, yards from his home.
In October, deputies arrested 29-year-old Aaron Holland in Bell’s death.
On Thursday, the Sheriff’s Office said they were searching a creek on Route 137, between Gatesville and US-13, for two weapons used in this homicide.
