A Statesville man was arrested Monday in connection to a shooting incident earlier this month that left one person injured.

Charod Terron Terry, 30, of Hunt Street, was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, assault with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, assault by pointing a gun and two counts of discharging a firearm in city limits.

He received a $163,000 secured bond from a magistrate.

Around 8:40 p.m. on April 16, Statesville Police Department officers answered a call concerning a report of gunshots near the 700 block of Newbern Avenue, police reported.

Officers discovered someone had suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and been taken to Iredell Memorial Hospital by a third party. The news release stated the victim was later moved to Wake Forest Baptist Regional Medical Center for treatment.

The Record & Landmark does not name victims of assault without their consent.

Investigators with the Violent Crime Unit found shell casings in the 700 block of Newbern Avenue. Based on information obtained during the investigation Terry was identified as the person responsible, police said.

Investigators believe that Terry also fired a weapon in that area several hours before the shooting incident, reports indicate.

Police said warrants for his arrest were filed the day of the shooting.

State records show that Terry has a criminal record involving larceny, possessing stolen goods, drug possession, drug trafficking, reckless driving, resisting an officer, DWI and identity fraud.
