Bertie Sheriff: Shooting Suspect Surrenders After Standoff

A Bertie County man is charged with shooting into his neighbor's house while a woman was home.

Bertie County Sheriff John Holley says 36-year-old Dwayne Conner surrendered after about an hour standoff Monday night.

Conner is charged with two felony counts of shooting into an occupied dwelling.

Holley says a woman called 9-1-1 just before 5:00 pm saying she found a bullet hole in her bedroom wall at her home on School Road, and while she was on the phone, someone shot into her living room.

Deputies says they found the suspect across the street in his home with multiple guns and charges could be upgraded.
