A 31-year-old man was wounded Saturday night, and another man was arrested within minutes and charged with the shooting, according to Goldsboro police reports.
The two men live at Casey's Trailer Lodge at 1700 S. Slocumb St., where the shooting occurred at about 6:30 p.m.
The victim, identified as Alexander A. Henriquez, was rushed by ambulance to Wayne Memorial Hospital. His condition was not immediately known.
Henriquez was fighting with another man, the report said, and the suspect pulled out a pistol and shot the victim.
Police charged Felipe Milan Fuentes, 37, with felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill while inflicting serious injury. He was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of a $25,000 secured bond.
An oven used to make rubber seals caught on fire today at Cooper Standard Products and caused an estimated $2,500 in damages, a Goldsboro fire official said.
Assistant Fire Chief Ray Boyette said the fire spread from the oven into duct work that ran to the top of the big building at 308 Fedelon Trail. Plant maintenance workers then evacuated the building.
A sprinkler system was activated and contained the fire, Boyette said.
About 18 firefighters answered the 7:47 a.m. call with three engines, a ladder truck and a command car. They remained until 9 a.m. to put out the fire, ventilate the building and investigate the cause.
"It looked a lot worse than it was," Boyette said.
He commended the firefighters for their quick response in finding the fire and putting it out.
