Lenoir man arrested after shooting

A Lenoir man is in jail accused of shooting someone in a car, and authorities say they’re still trying to learn what led to the crime.

Justin Matthew Wilson is charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle. He is being held in the Caldwell County Detention Center under a $150,000 secured bond.

Authorities were called to the intersection of Duck Creek and HT roads in Lenoir a little before 9 p.m. Friday after getting reports of shots being fired in the area. Around the same time, law enforcement in Alexander County received a report from people saying they had been shot at in Caldwell County and one of the people in the car had been injured, the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

The victim has been treated and released from the hospital.

The shooting remains under investigation.
