— A 21-year-old Fayetteville man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that happened Sunday at a Wells Fargo Bank branch on Raeford Road, police said.

Ladarious Dion Hill, of 6717 Sexton Court, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

According to investigators, Hill shot Anna Louise Williams, 24, in the torso while she was making a deposit at the bank at about 9 p.m.

Investigators said Williams was the passenger in a car driven by a friend that entered the bank's drive-through lane from the wrong direction so she could use the automated teller to make a deposit.

An unidentified man approached the car, shouted "Hey" and fired his gun without ever demanding money, police said.

Williams' friend sped off after the shooting and drove directly to Cape Fear Valley, which is about five minutes from the bank. Williams was in critical but stable condition Monday and is expected to recover from her injuries.

Hill was in the Cumberland County jail Thursday under a $100,000 secured bond.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Fayetteville Police Department at 910-433-1856 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-8477.

    Georgia passed a two strikes law in the 1990s to remove repeat violent offenders from the streets. It may be necessary to do the same thing in North Carolina in order to protect law abiding citizens.

    Past records show he was arrested and found guilty of B&E, Larceny, and assault.

    I wonder, does Ladarious have previous felonies? I bet lunch this guy has a record. What was this guy doing with a weapon? The state of NC should impose an additional ten years in priosn just using a weapon in a crime.
