Assault with deadly weapon
Police arrested and charged a Goldsboro woman in connection to a weekend shooting that sent one man to the hospital.
Goldsboro police arrested and charged Angel Litaker, 27, of South Slocumb Street, with one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
Police responded to an early morning shooting Saturday on South Slocumb Street and found Steve Carlos Brown, 26, lying on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound, said LaToya Henry, spokeswoman for the city of Goldsboro.
Litaker told police she shot Brown, of South Slocumb Street, in the left arm, according to a Goldsboro Police Department incident investigation report. She told police she allegedly had an ongoing argument with Brown and feared for her safety.
Brown was taken to Wayne UNC Health Care for treatment of his non-life-threatening injury, and police opened an investigation, Henry said.
Litaker was placed in the Wayne County jail under a $10,000 secured bond.
Goldsboro police are investigating a stolen handgun after a man allegedly took it out of the owner’s car.
Jonathan Allen McNair, 36, of Carver Drive, told police he was driving a customer home from the store where he works at around 11:50 p.m. Sunday, according to a Goldsboro Police Department incident investigation report. McNair dropped the customer off and was approached by a man in the 200 block of Alpha Court.
The man leaned into McNair’s car and asked for a few dollars, the report states. During that time, the man reached into the car and took McNair’s .40-caliber pistol. McNair asked the man to give the gun back, but the man said he “had something” for McNair and walked around to the trunk of the car.
At that time, McNair became worried about what the man would do and left the scene, the report continues. Police estimated the value of property taken to be $369.96.
