NEW INFO: GPD arrest 24 year old in Thursday shooting

GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) – The Greenville Police Department has made an arrest in the Thursday morning shooting that took place at the corner of Arlington Boulevard and Memorial Drive.

Police said 24 year old Shelton Dominique Northern was arrested Saturday. Northern is charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

On Thursday, Tyler Antwan Wilson, 23, of Greenville, sustained a gunshot wound to the back of his upper leg that is non-life-threatening, police said.

Shortly after, a victim arrived at Vidant Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his upper leg.

Northern is being held at the Pitt County Detention Center under a $50,000 bond.
