Man charged with shooting into occupied vehicle

A Statesville man was arrested and charged after shots were fired into a vehicle in which two men were sitting late Wednesday outside the suspect’s home in the 100 block of Sigmon Road.

Iredell County sheriff’s investigators charged Wesley Oneal Summers, 42, with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count each of discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling and disorderly conduct. Summers was jailed on $5,000 bail.

No injuries were reported.

Investigators have not released what they believe was the motive for the shooting or said whether Summers knows the men who were inside the vehicle.
