The man shot by Wilson police earlier this month has now been discharged from the hospital and booked at the county jail for assault charges.

Jailers at the Pitt County Detention Center said 26-year-old Ryan Borunda was arrested by Greenville Police around 4 p.m. Monday and booked at the county jail.

Borunda is facing three counts of assault with a deadly weapon intent to kill.

Police say they were called to Borunda's father's home on Rand Road around 2:40 p.m. on August 15th.

When officers arrived, they said they were confronted by a man with a knife. The State Bureau of Investigation says Officer Donald Lucas shot Borunda.

The man's father told WITN his son spent seven years in the military, including tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He had been back in the U.S. for seven months.

Jailers said Borunda's bond was set at $150,000 ahead of his first court appearance in Wilson County, which is scheduled for Wednesday.
