LENOIR — The Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a Lenoir man in a shooting death.

The office announced Wednesday that Isaac McKinely Dixon, 22, is wanted on one count of murder in the shooting death of Jose David Martinez Aguilera, 25, also of Lenoir.

Officers and other first responders found Aguilera dead Tuesday evening in a car at Old North and Collettsville roads. He had suffered several gunshot wounds, the sheriff’s office said.

Investigators with the sheriff’s office and State Bureau of Investigation determined Aguilera had been shot outside a home on Quailridge Court in Lenoir.

Zachary Nathaniel Kersey, 22, of Lenoir, is charged with accessory after the fact to murder in connection with the killing. Kersey was arrested Tuesday morning at the Red Roof Inn in Lenoir and is being held under a $750,000 secured bond.

Dixon had not been apprehended as of Wednesday morning.

The sheriff’s office is asking anyone with knowledge of Dixon’s whereabouts to call their office at 828-758-2324. Tipsters who wish to be anonymous can call the Caldwell County Crimestoppers at 828-758-8300.
