Investigators believe the men, both from Sanford, were involved in a home invasion in the 500 block of Rock Pit Road on May 10 that ended in the shooting death of Curtis Murray Jr.
Investigators said two men wearing hoodies broke into the house and threatened Murray and a teenager with a gun. There was a scuffle and Murray was shot before the culprits took off, records show. The teenager was not injured.
A neighbor called 911 and the victim was taken to hospital where he later died, investigators said. Police said Murray was being targeted and the shooting was not a random act of violence, however, investigators did not say why Murray was targeted or how he came to know his attackers.
After the shooting, police released a video of two men they called people of interest. They haven’t said if Lemon and Hendricks are the same men in the video.
Lemon faces charges of murder, armed robbery and aggravated assault with a lethal weapon. Hendricks is charged with felony probation violation. Police said the investigation was ongoing and additional charges could be laid. The two men are locked in the Orange County jail.
Anyone with additional information on this deadly home invasion is asked to call (321) 264-7800 or call Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477. Tips to Crimeline may be eligible for a reward of up to $ 5,000.
