Juvenile suspect arrested and charged with murder of Devin Clark and Lyric Woods

An important development in the case of the murders of Lyric Woods and Devin Clark occurred when the teen suspect, who was 17, was caught for shooting dead the two companions.



The 17-year-old who is accused of killing 14-year-old Lyric Woods and 18-year-old Devin Clark last month in Orange County, North Carolina is in custody.

Hillsborough, NC (October 5, 2022) – Less than an hour ago, authorities detained a juvenile in connection with the murders of Devin Clark and Lyric Woods.

Sheriff Charles Blackwood said, “We hope this apprehension provides some relief to the families and friends of Devin and Lyric, who have experienced an excruciating loss. Obviously, the capture of the suspect does not restore their loved one to them. The grieving process is a long one, and we hope the community will continue to support them in their pain.”

Under North Carolina General Statutes, no one at the Orange County Sheriff’s Office has the ability or authority to release any further information until such time the case is no longer under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court. Not only does the relevant statute prohibit the release of the juvenile’s name, but also extends to the release of details such as who apprehended the individual, as well as when and where the apprehension took place.

Blackwood added, “We understand our community is hungry for information to help process this tragedy; however, the laws regarding juvenile confidentiality are ironclad. We have no ability to set them aside, even given the heightened interest in this case.”
