Posted April 3, 2013
Princeton, N.C. — A 6-year-old boy was grazed by a bullet in a drive-by shooting in Princeton Wednesday evening, police said.
Terrance Lockley, 22, of Goldsboro, was charged with attempted first-degree murder in the shooting.
Police say Lockley fired about five rounds at a crowd of people in the front yard of a home at 508 West First St. around 5:10 p.m. One bullet grazed the boy's forehead.
He was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
Princeton Police Chief Tyrone Sutton said the shooting could have been a lot worse.
"When you have random gunfire like that in a drive-by, it can be very dangerous," Sutton said. "You had several people out in the front yard. It could have been a fatal shot."
Witnesses said there was a second man in the green Dodge Intrepid with tinted windows involved in the drive-by shooting, but police have not said whether he has been identified.
The shooting stemmed from an argument between Lockley and some people at the home, Sutton said.
No other information was released.
