Teen charged

A teen was arrested Friday and charged in a shooting incident the previous night, the Goldsboro Police Department reported.

Investigator W.P. VanWijk arrested Shatanna Thompson, 16, of Lincoln Drive, and charged him with two felony counts: Assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and inflicting serious injury and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

Thompson, who's known as "KeeRoss," was charged also with a misdemeanor count of assault by pointing a gun. Thompson was placed in the Wayne County Jail under $200,500 bond.

The charges stem from the investigation into a shooting in the 1100 block of N. James Street on Thursday, according to reports. No further information was available about that assault. Investigator M. Moore assisted; the ivestigation is continuing.


A Goldsboro man was shot by a stranger early Saturday morning, police report.

The suspect reportedly said, "Don't move -- I'm going to shoot you." Puerto turned and began to run when the suspect shot at him. Puerto was struck by pellets in the right side of his torso and in his right arm. The suspect then fled.

Puerto was taken to the Wayne Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.

The suspect was described as a black male in his late 20s, around 6 feet tall with a thin build, wearing a brown T-shirt and black pants. The victim said that he did not know him.
