Police arrest 15-year-old for Kinston shooting


KINSTON, Lenoir County - Kinston Police announced an arrest Wednesday in a shots fired case dating back more than a month ago.

Kinston PD spokesperson Woody Spencer said the department arrested a 15-year-old juvenile, charging that individual with possession of a firearm by a minor and discharging a firearm to terrorize the public.

The charges stem from a Sept. 9 incident, when Kinston Police say the juvenile fired several rounds toward residences near the intersection of Bright and East streets. Police say they were unable to determine the target of the shooting.

The suspect was placed into juvenile detention.
