LUMBERTON — A 25-year-old Robeson County man has been charged in a shooting last week that sent another man to the hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
According to police Capt. Terry Parker, Demarreon McDaniel, of Manning Road, Rowland, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and was placed in the Robeson County jail under a $25,000 secured bond.
Parker said officers on Friday at 7:29 p.m. responded to a call of shots being fired at 103 Carolina Ave., where they found Dexter Johnson, 27, of Pate Street, with injuries to a leg. Johnson was taken to Southeastern Regional Medical Center.
