Goldsboro police arrested a second teenage suspect Monday in the May 22 shooting at a North George Street home that hospitalized six young people.

Shavaye Faronte Brooks, 16, of South Kornegay Street, was charged with 10 counts of discharging a weapon into occupied property and six counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

At the time of the arrest, Brooks, who was a student at Goldsboro High School as recently as this spring, was already incarcerated at the Wayne County Jail under a $16,000 secured bond.

The new charges resulted in an additional $1.5 million bond.

On April 5, Brooks was charged by Goldsboro police with two counts each of breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, and possession of stolen goods. Brooks was given an $8,000 secured bond. The following day, he was put on pre-trial release.

On June 8, Brooks was arrested for violations of his pre-trial release conditions and placed back in the Wayne County Jail.

The violations included Brooks failing to charge monitoring devices and to attend mandated classes.

Brooks joins Tremayne Malik Lane, 18, of Royal Drive, Dudley, who was arrested June 10, as the only suspects in custody in connection with the shots that were fired into a home around 12:30 a.m. while a party was taking place.

Those injured in the shooting included the home's resident, Raimonte Walls, 21; James Crawford Jr., 16, of Greenleaf Street; Covia Williams, 19, of Rudolph Street; Teianna Howell, 16, of North Alabama Avenue; Demetrius Raiford, 21, of North Kornegay Street; and a 15-year-old male juvenile who was not identified.

The investigation is still ongoing and additional arrest(s) are expected.
