This means nothing unless it's the E6 number. If it's the E3 number it's a lie. The real unemployment number , E 6, nation wide is close to 12%.

First degree murder charges have been issued for Vincent B. Carter

A warrant for the arrest of Vincent B. Carter has been issued by the Adams County Circuit Court.

Carter has been formally charged with First Degree murder in the shooting death of Terry L. Williams on January 3. Bond has been set in the amount of $1,000,000.

Quincy Police are still searching for Carter, 44, of 219 S. 11th.  Police responded to 219 S. 11th just after 3 pm to reports of a gunshot wound.

Carter is described as a 5'7" bald, black male.

Quincy Police Chief Rob Copley says this was not a random shooting as the suspect and victim reportedly knew one another.

Copley said Carter is considered armed and dangerous and asks people to call Crimestoppers at 228-4474 if you think you run across the suspect.

Copley said autopsy results should be released later this morning.

From QPD:

On January 3, 2013 shortly after 3:00pm, an altercation occurred between two individuals at an apartment located at 219 S. 11th Street.  As a result of that altercation, Terry L. Williams, 53 years of age, a Quincy resident, was shot with a small caliber handgun.  Following the shooting, the second person involved in the altercation fled the scene on foot.  Williams was transported to Blessing hospital by ambulance and was pronounced dead a short time later.

 

          Following the incident, an intense search for the suspect lead officers to several locations within the city but the suspect was not located.
