Teen charged with murder, burglary is second suspect in fatal home invasion in Winston-Salem


A Winston-Salem teen faces charges of murder and burglary in connection with a deadly home invasion last month.

Damien Daeron Jordan, 19, of Claremont Avenue, is charged with felony murder and first-degree burglary, according to arrest warrants.

Jordan is accused of killing Robert Pedro Singletary, 41, on Dec. 27 and breaking into the home where Singletary and four people were to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, the warrants said.

Jordan was arrested Thursday by the U.S. Marshals Task Force in the 2800 block North Claremont Avenue, Winston-Salem police said.

Jordan was being held Friday in the Forsyth County Jail with no bond allowed, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said. He is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 14.

In addition to the murder and burglary charges that stem from Singletary’s death, Jordan faces two counts of firing a gun into occupied dwelling, and one count of discharging a firearm from an enclosure, according to two additional arrest warrants.

Those charges are related to another incident, police said.

Shortly after 10 p.m. on Dec. 27, investigators learned that several people had forced their way into a home in the 1100 block of Louise Road and held occupants at gunpoint with intentions of robbing them.

Singletary, whom police said lived nearby on Louise Road, was at the house. He was shot and died at the scene.

Another Winston-Salem man faces criminal charges in the case.

Dejunte Dequan Moore, 21, of Burke Village Lane, was arrested and charged Jan. 5 with murder, burglary and robbery with a dangerous weapon in connection with Singletary’s death, police said.

Moore also was being held Friday in the jail with no bond allowed, the sheriff’s office said. Moore is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 21.

On an unrelated matter, Jordan is accused of firing handgun from an occupied moving vehicle on July 13, 2020, into an occupied house on Burtis Street and into an occupied car on that street, according to arrest warrants.
