Man faces attempted murder in Walmart shooting
WILSON, N.C. (WITN) - An Eastern Carolina man was charged with attempted first-degree murder after a shooting at a Walmart in Wilson.
Police were called to the store at 2500 Forest Hills Road for shots fired just after 1:00 Monday afternoon. There, they found shell casings, interviewed witnesses, and reviewed security camera footage.
Officers say 19-year-old Yah-Shaun Johnson tried to shoot a Walmart employee named Derrick Artis, 20, and another teen, Amonte Watson.
Johnson was then reportedly driven away by his fiancé, Destiny Spell.
Artis ran away; Watson left in a car.
During the investigation, both vehicles were found and everyone in them were interviewed.
Johnson was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and two counts of injury to personal property.
Johnson was given no bond due to being on pretrial release for a pending firearm related charge.
Spell was charged with two counts of felony accessory after the fact to attempted first-degree murder. Spell was given a $25,000 secured bond for her involvement.
Two unrelated vehicles were hit by gunfire. At this time, there are no reported injuries.
The investigation is still ongoing.
