Raylon and Kenneth Parker have been charged with first-degree murder in the Thanksgiving Day shooting death of 31-year-old Levaska Smith III in Rocky Mount.

ROCKY MOUNT — Two men have been charged in a shooting death that occurred late on Thanksgiving Day.

Kenneth Parker, 35, of Rocky Mount, and Raylon Parker, 33, of Enfield, face first-degree murder charges. They are being held without bond in the Nash County Detention Center in Nashville.

Officers responded to a shots-fired call at 11:45 p.m. Thursday on the 2500 block of Sexton Road, according to Cpl. Ricky Jackson, public information officer for the Rocky Mount Police Department.

“When officers arrived, they located a 31-year-old male victim, Levaska Smith III, lying in the yard of a residence,” Jackson said in a news release. “EMS responded and pronounced the victim deceased at the scene.”

Jackson said all parties involved knew each other.

The police department’s Criminal Investigation Division is conducting a follow-up investigation in the case.

Authorities ask anyone with information or video footage related to the killing to call the Rocky Mount Police Department at 252-972-1411 or Twin County Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111.
