Teen extradited from Connecticut, charged in shooting death of Concord man

CONCORD, N.C. — A teenager was arrested in connection with the shooting death of a man who was waiting for a bus on Lincoln Street in Concord, police confirmed Thursday.

Omarrion Hudson, 16, was arrested in early January by U.S. Marshals in Connecticut and charged with the murder of Derron Jordan that happened on Dec. 27.

He was extradited back to Cabarrus County on Jan. 17.

Hudson faces a first-degree murder charge, and Jordan’s family wants answers.

“My nephew is gone, and he’s not coming back,” said Angela Thomas, Jordan’s aunt.

The 31-year-old was known by his family as a jokester and they said he made everyone laugh.

Jordan was shot at about 6 p.m., and later that night, Jordan’s cousin, 13-year-old Avenanna Probst, was shot and killed outside Concord Mills mall.

Police said the two shootings were not related.

“Derron was a good person, and he didn’t deserve to be shot down like he was shot down, standing at a bus station waiting for a bus,” Thomas said. “That’s not called for.”

Concord police and the U.S. Marshals had been looking for Hudson.

“These kids are able to get guns like this,” Thomas said. “There are adults that can’t even get a gun, and then you got kids, 16 years old, are able to get their hands on guns like they are toys.”

“We just really want this to end. For there to be justice for Derron,” Thomas said.

Hudson was on probation at the time he allegedly shot and killed Jordan, police said.
