Isaiah E. Rorie


HIGH POINT — Police say a High Point man wanted in a deadly shooting Monday should be considered armed and dangerous.

Isaiah E. Rorie, 24, is facing a first-degree murder charge in the death of 17-year-old Deanthony J. Little of High Point, who was found shot in the head in the road in the area of Brentwood Street and Nathan Hunt Drive on Monday night, according to a police news release.

In addition, Rorie is wanted on two counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury in the shootings of Khasi L. Gladden, 17, and Kameron L. Turner, 20, both also of High Point, in the same shooting that left Little dead, police said.

Rorie is about 6 feet tall and 240 pounds. Anyone with information on his location should call 911 immediately, police said. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers or use the P3 mobile app, police said.

Police said the three who were shot got into a verbal exchange with people in another car Monday night before shots were exchanged between occupants of the two vehicles.

When the victims discovered that Little had been shot, they removed his body from the vehicle and left him in the road where he was later found by officers, police said.

Detectives said the shooting was not random and that the people in both vehicles had previous contact with each other that likely led to what happened Monday.
