CRAVEN COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - Both men injured in Wednesday’s shooting and assault outside of New Bern are now behind bars.

Craven County deputies today charged Barrett Crow with felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

On Thursday, deputies charged Jason Hathaway with the same crime.

The shooting & assault happened around 10:20 a.m. Wednesday at the Fuel Market on U.S. 70 in James City. It spilled over to the KFC next door and a car dealership.

Deputies say the 37-year-old Crow was shot three times, while Hathaway was struck in the head by a blunt object.

Both men were taken to ECU Health Medical Center in Greenville.

The 44-year-old Hathaway, who is from Indiana, was released from the hospital and then charged by deputies.

Hathaway posted a $100,000 bond, and during a first court appearance Thursday morning a District Court judge increased the man’s bond to $500,000. He was moved to Central Prison in Raleigh for safekeeping, according to a news release.

Crow, who is from New Bern, was arrested after his release from the same hospital. He was given a $500,000 secured bond, and his $350,000 bond for a 2020 shooting at a nightclub in Havelock was revoked.

Like Hathaway, Crowe was moved to Central Prison for safekeeping.

Deputies said the two men were fighting, but have not released any more details.
