A man accused of shooting his neighbor earlier in the week is now charged with attempted murder.

Ronald Eanes was originally charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

After conferring with the District Attorney's Office, Craven County investigators brought upgraded charges against the 51-year-old man.

Deputies say Cedric Williams was shot around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday on Green Springs Road. The man was hit in his right side and the bullet came out the left side of his back.

Williams was first taken to CarolinaEast Medical Center and later transferred to Vidant Medical Center. Deputies say he was later released from the hospital.

The victim told deputies that Eanes, who lives across the street, shot him.

Eanes is now being held without bond until he goes before a District Court judge on Monday.
