PACTOLUS, Pitt County - The man accused of shooting his wife in a situation that forced a school lockdown on Tuesday went before a judge on Wednesday.

Calvin Lee Miller was given a $2 million bond by a judge. Miller denied shooting his wife during the hearing, the Associated Press reports.



A school lockdown has been lifted after authorities captured man wanted in connection to a domestic violence incident.

Authorities confirmed that Calvin Lee Miller, the man wanted for shooting his wife earlier this morning, was caught sometime around 1:30 p.m. on Hwy. 30 not far from Hwy. 264.

Charlene Miller suffered life-threatening injuries in the shooting at a farm supply store where she worked. She is currently in Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.



One school is on lockdown after an incident at a local store.

Pactolus School is on a modified lockdown because of an incident at a store that is located near the school.

Pitt County Sheriff's Office Kip Gaskins says the lockdown was the result of an early morning shooting in the area that left one woman in serious condition at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.

After combing the area for the suspected shooter -- Calvin Lee Miller.

If a child was riding the bus to school, they were diverted to Welcome Middle School, Travis Lewis, Pitt County Schools Director of Community and Student Services said. The children will be there until law enforcement gives the all clear.

If a child was driven into Pactolus, they are safe at the school.

Parents are welcome to pick up their children from Welcome Middle School, but not from Pactolus as they are on a modified lockdown.

Law enforcement is at Pactolus School as a precaution.
