JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Jacksonville police on Thursday charged three people in connection to the shooting of a 19-year-old man Wednesday.
Police said Anthony Dyshawn Stanley, 22, was taken into custody without incident Thursday. He was charged with attempted first degree murder, going armed to the terror of the public, discharging a dangerous weapon, three counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle, malicious assault in secret, felony conspiracy, and injury to personal property.
Nijear Tyrone Singleton, 22, conspired with Singleton to dispose of evidence after the shooting, police said. He was charged with felony soliciting gang activity, and accessory-after-the-fact to murder. Detectives also discovered that Zorriah Lanina Yarrell, 22, assisted Stanley in evading capture by law enforcement. Yarrell was also charged with accessory-after-the-fact to murder. The investigation is still active and more arrests are expected, Lt. Christopher Funcke said.
Police said they responded at 9:30 a.m. to an area of Arnold Road in Jacksonville after getting a call that someone had been shot. Officers discovered Ruben Corley Jr., 19, of Jacksonville had been shot at the Sandy Run apartment complex, located on Coleman Drive.
Officials said Corley fled the apartment complex after being shot and requested a resident on Arnold Road to call for medical assistance. Corley was transported to the US Naval Hospital aboard Camp Lejeune, where he was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries at this time.
Police said the investigation revealed that Stanley fired “several rounds” at Corley.
