Man Shot Five Times, Suspect Arrested

A man is in a Greenville hospital tonight after being shot five times, including once in the head, at a Nashville convenience store. Police say they have arrested the suspect.

Nashville police say it happened Saturday night at Omar's Quick Mart in Nash County. Police say the victim, Shiaphan Lewis, was walking out of the convenience store with the alleged gunman, Marcus Alston, when Lewis was shot.

Lewis was then found a block away from the store with five bullet wounds, one in the head, two in the back, one in the arm, and one in the hand.

He was taken to Nash Health Care System and then Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

Alston was arrested and charged with first degree attempted murder. He is in the Nash County Jail under a $75,000 dollar bond.

    Why do they deserve bail at all, the people they shoot dont't get bail if they die. In this case the working american people will pick up the bill. When someone decides to shoot someone then their right to freedom should be taken away.

    I wish people would think about if this was a person in their family. Why does it matter what he was shot with. The point is that he is another person that got shot for no reason.I'm just glad that God allowed him to live. The Lewis family is still in my prayers.

    Kevmoney. What does the price of gasoline have to do with this. The oil companies get that money not the government.

    75000.00 for his bond but 5 million for richardson and 500,000.00 for lewis and might i mention richardson and lewis are being charged with murder....i think anyone that is involved in any tyoe of murder should be 1 million or more until you go to trial

    I am glad that he is recovering well. And to all the people concerned about who is going to pay his bill its NONE of your business. No one says anything when yall people are out standing and begging for money and getting hit by cars. An innocent victim and yall are quick to worry about who paying. Hell yall probably dont even have a job to be concerned about it in the 1st place. Get a life and get the big picture. Its about life and NOT about the money that will be paid REGARDLESS!!! Idiots

    so people are worried about tax payers money paying for a man's hospital stay IF he happens to need it (which he probably wont)??? They sure can afford it with the way they are robbing us blind at the gas pumps alone. Not to mention the budget cuts being made despite the billion plus dollars being funneled in annually..... and u worried about the small scale "crooks"... but i guess they are big in your little world

    I bet you a 100 bucks to a donut that JD is right on who picks up the tab for Mr Lewis's hospital stay.

    This question is for J.D. from Eastern NC. I wonder if you would still recommend using a larger caliber weapon and shooting lessons if the victim were you brother, sons or Mom. Think about it.
