Suspect is arrested

(Winston-Salem Journal) - A 22-year-old Winston-Salem man was charged with first-degree murder late last night in the shooting death of Winston-Salem police Sgt. Howard Plouff.

Police officers arrested Keith Antoine Carter of 201 Plaza Hollow Drive, Apt. 54-B at the police station and took him to the Forsyth County Jail shortly before midnight. Plaza Hollow Drive is off High Point Road near Interstate 40 in southeastern Winston-Salem.

Police said that Carter told them that he was a student at Winston-Salem State University, but investigators hadn't verified that. Carter was being booked into the jail, with no bond allowed.
