NEW INFO: 4 Arrested In Grimesland Shooting

More Video...

Nearly a week and a halfafter a man was shot while in a car, deputies said the suspected gunmen have been arrested.

Pitt County Sheriff Neil Elks said the group had "every intention to take a life that night," speaking of the January 16th shooting.

Investigators initially were called to the report of a man being shot along South Grimesland Bridge Road at 4:55 a.m.

Deputies later said while they were called to a home on South Grimesland Bridge road first, the shooting actually took place at a nearby mobile home park.

Investigators said two vehicles with two occupants in each were driving through the residential area when one car stopped and a man got out. The second car stopped to see what was going on and a man inside that second car was shot, according to deputies.

Family members nearby told WITN a young man named Anton Godley was shot and taken to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville that Thursday morning for surgery. Vidant was unable to confirm Godley was a patient there at the time.

The Pitt County Sheriff's office said U.S. Marshals tracked down the four men allegedly involved in that shooting, and charged them. Three were arrested, while one man was already booked in the Craven County jail, according to deputies.

Each suspect's bond is now set at more than a million dollars.

Only three of the four men had mug shots readily available from online jail records.

Charged are 24-year-old Robert Blount III, Devonelle Brimage who is 23-years-old, 26-year-old Scottey Wright, and 22-year-old Aaron Carter.

WITN anticipates more information about the shooting and arrests to be released around 10:30 a.m. Monday.
