Alamance County Sheriff’s Office detectives determined that the two men were a part of separate criminal enterprises. Investigators believe that Harris and a team of people were at the home to steal illegal narcotics and money. At some point, deputies said a shootout occurred and which resulted in the deaths of Harris and Alonso Lara.
During the investigation, the Sheriff’s Office has seized five firearms, approximately $7,000 in cash, and 1.2 kilograms of suspected cocaine. Two vehicles that were involved in the incident were also found. One found in Guilford County and one in Alamance County.
On Sunday, April 11 deputies arrested Steven Stewart, Jr. and he was charged with first-degree burglary and first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon in relation to the Wyatt Road incident.

Don’t know many details yet, but the pattern of black men being killed by police in traffic stops while white men are taken into custody alive after mass shootings is so striking. It’s not coincidence. #brooklyncenter— Dimitri Drekonja (@Ddrekonja) April 12, 2021

It's fucking crazy how ANY gathering to protest police brutality and racism is declared an unlawful assembly but storming the Capitol, Nazi and anti mask rallies are cool #brooklyncenter— ꓘПӨ53ᄂF 🏴☠️ (@NO53LF) April 12, 2021
