LUMBERTON — A Red Springs man is wanted for a shooting that happened early Thursday morning, leaving a person with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.
Cody Alexander Locklear, 27, of Red Springs, is charged with attempted murder.
Anyone with information about Locklear’s whereabouts is asked to call 911, according to Red Springs police Maj. Kimothy Monroe.
Monroe said local law enforcement responded to a call at 1:44 a.m. to the Jiffy Stop, located at 1101 W. Third Ave., in reference to a person shot while in the parking lot. When officers arrived, they found 27-year-old Terry Austin Locklear of Red Springs in the driver’s side seat of a white Chevrolet Tahoe with a gunshot wound to his lower extremities.
According to Monroe, Locklear told officer that Cody Locklear stopped his car near the Tahoe, entered the passenger’s side of the vehicle and the two began fighting. He told police that at some point Cody Locklear got out of the SUV, got a gun from his vehicle and began to shoot into the Tahoe.
Locklear was taken to Southeastern Regional Medical Center. He is expected to recover.
Locklear told police that his girlfriend is the mother of Cody Locklear’s child and the incident was because of that relationship.
