Family offers reward in Hickory killings


RECORD FILE PHOTO: Rosie Sharpe, mother of  16-year-old Damarion Sharpe, wipes tears from her eyes as she talks about her son. Damarion and his cousin Xzavion Watts, Sharpe's nephew were both killed at a Marathon gas station on May 10. The family is now offering a $10,000 reward for information on the case. 

The family of two cousins who were killed in Hickory earlier this year is offering a $10,000 reward for information on the case.

Seven months have passed since 16-year-old Damarion Sharpe and his 20-year-old cousin Xzavion Watts were killed at the Marathon gas station at the intersection of First Avenue SW and 17th Street.

Reports from the police at the time of the shooing indicated the suspect was a Black male who fled the scene on foot.

Though the case remains active, no one has been arrested in the killing, Hickory police Capt. Jeff Young said.

Anyone with information on the case can call the Hickory Police Department at 828-328-5551.
