Halifax, N.C. — A Halifax County man once charged with murder in a 2008 shooting death faces new charges in connection with a shooting at a party early Sunday.
Lt. George Evans said that Daquan Sherodd Pittman, 21, is accused of opening fire at a party outside Scotland Neck around 1:30 a.m. Sunday. Bullets struck two people.
Both victims were taken to Pitt Memorial Hospital in Greenville, Evans said. One has been released, while the other was in fair condition Monday.
Pittman was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. He was given an $82,000 bond and scheduled to appear in court Dec. 7.
