PITT COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) -An Enfield man is behind bars in Pitt County on charges that he tried to kill another man.

Jocquez Davis was booked at the Pitt County jail Tuesday.

Davis has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and two counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied property.

The shooting happened around 1:15 a.m. Sunday at a home on William Horice Circle.

Deputies say they found a 26-year-old man who had been shot in the leg. The victim was treated and released from ECU Health Medical Center.

Their investigation found a dispute between several people led up to the shooting, deputies said.

They discovered bullets also hit a home with several adults and a three-year-old child inside. Fortunately, none of them were hit by the gunfire.

The 26-year-old Davis was jailed on a $1,000,000 secured bond and deputies say more charges are possible.
