First Posted: 7/2/2013

LUMBERTON — Police are looking for a 20-year-old Fairmont man they say shot and injured a 17-year-old Lumberton teenager, according to Capt. Terry Parker of the Lumberton Police Department.

Derion Hinson, of Griffin Street, is charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder, discharge of weapon in occupied property causing serious injury, discharging weapon into occupied moving vehicle and two counts of injury to personal property.

According to Parker, Hinson is accused of firing multiple shots into a moving vehicle that was occupied by Michael Warren, of 600 Warwick Mill Road. Parker said Warren was struck in the back of the head, but said it is unclear if the injury was caused by a bullet or debris from the car.

Warren was treated at Southeastern Regional Medical Center and transferred to Duke University Medical Center in Durham. His injuries are not life-threatening.

Parker said there were three other people in the passenger car with Warren, but no one else was injured.

The altercation occurred at the Howard Johnson Inn on Capuano Drive. Parker said Warren appeared to be leaving a gathering at the motel at about 12:53 a.m. Saturday when he was shot. Parker believes there was some kind of ongoing disagreement between Warren and Hinson.

Hinson has been in jail for multiple charges of resisting arrest and possession of marijuana.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Hinson should call police Detective Brian Hodge at 910-671-3845.
