Suspect, victim arrested after Ayden shooting

Posted: Updated:
AYDEN, N.C. - A suspect and the victim are behind bars following another Ayden shooting.

Police say Lakenn Spady was shot in the right leg Wednesday night. It happened around 10 p.m.

Spady reported to police that he met a man, who called and asked Spady to come out of his Planters Street residence. He saw a man with a gun as he came out of the house and turned to run, but was shot before he could get away.

Police searched Laken’s home and found two guns, several bags of cocaine, and marijuana in baggies. Spady was charged with cocaine and marijuana possession, among other charges, following his release from Vidant Medical Center.

They identified one of the suspects in the shooting as 19-year-old Dearenta Warren of Winterville. He was charged with attempted murder. He told police he had accomplices, one of them, a 14-year-old boy.

Officers are still searching for them.

Warren is in the Pitt County Detention Center. He’s also linked to a robbery at a barn robbery on Williams Street just last weekend.
