Posted January 6, 2015
Raleigh, N.C. — North Carolina State University men's basketball player Terry Henderson was arrested by Raleigh police Monday on gun charges related to an incident involving a pellet gun.
Henderson, who transferred to NC State from West Virginia University, is charged with carrying a concealed weapon and discharging a firearm in the Raleigh city limits.
He was arrested at about 1 a.m. in the 7700 block of Crocker Drive. Raleigh police said Henderson and another man, Shawn Jerome Dunn, fired an air-powered gun at a person's vehicle. The vehicle sustained pellet strikes, and Raleigh police said one of the suspects knew the victim.
Dunn was charged with injury to personal property and discharging a firearm in Raleigh.
NC State associated athletics director for communications and marketing Fred Demarest released a statement on the arrest.
“Terry made us aware early yesterday morning of his arrest related to his use of an air pistol. We will await the forthcoming court proceedings before commenting further," the statement said.
Henderson is sitting out the 2014-15 season and will be eligible to compete for the Wolfpack in 2015-16.
