— A West End man was arrested after authorities said Friday that he used a rifle to shoot a passing vehicle, injuring someone inside.

Daniel Caleb Tucker, 20, of the 2300 block of Murdocksville Road, was charged with two counts of discharge of a weapon into occupied property and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, according to the Moore County Sheriff’s Office.

Two men told deputies they were traveling on Murdocksville Road in the Eastwood area Monday when their truck was hit with a rifle round. One of the men was injured in the incident and taken to Moore Regional Hospital, where he was treated and released.

Tucker was arrested Tuesday. He was held in the Moore County Detention Center under $5,000 secured bond.

His first court appearance is set for Aug. 24.

    Mommy and daddy should not bail him out and allow him to man-up and face his dire consequences.

    Hew should have ro pay all of these men medical expenses. If the parents do so, well they should have raised their son in the right way.

    I pray the judge will come down very hard on this young unthinking man. He could very well have killed someone. May he have to spend some long time in jail. I hope they fixed it so he will never be able to put a loaded or empty gun or any kind of weapon in his hands. :) I bet his mother and father is so proud of him. What did you as parents instill in him? Was he listening? You can never second guess what your child will do.

    Yes, he's a sick man. People who aren't don't randomly shoot at others.
