On February 5th, 2017 Orlando L. Flowers was leaving a residence at 811 Arlington St in Rocky Mount after watching the super bowl with some friends.
When he exited the residence he was shot several times and killed in front of the residence.
Could an ex boyfriend of Orlando's girlfriend be the killer?
Orlando was 45 years old and was a father of 6 children plus one on the way when he was murdered.
Orlando got into some trouble in his younger years and served some time but had not been in any other trouble since 1991. He really straightened himself out.
Orlando was dating a girl we will call "Q" at the time. "Q" had an ex boyfriend who we will call "D" who apparently did not like Orlando.
From September 2016 until Orlando's death he was shot at and assaulted.
In September 2016 "D" shot at Orlando. Orlando was not hit during the incident
In November 2016 "D" assaulted Orlando at the Silkz night club in Rocky Mount.
In December 18th 2016 "D" struck Orlando's vehicle with his vehicle.
In January 2017 "Q" found out that she was pregnant.
On February 2nd, 2017 "Q" sent a text message to "D" stating that she does not want him, that she wanted to be with Orlando.
On February 5th, 2017 Orlando was shot and killed.
On the evening of the shooting "D" borrowed a friends 2015 Hyundai Sonata so that he would not be noticed by Orlando.
"D" had his own vehicles, a 1992 Honda Accord and a 1999 Chevy Silverado that he had full access to.
