Posted November 25, 2013
Parkton, N.C. — Cumberland County sheriff's detectives arrested a Parkton woman Sunday night and charged her with attempted murder in connection with a shooting on Friday.
Detectives say Tiffany Prince Bethea, 34, broke into the home of her "intimate partner," Taneshia Robinson, 38, and shot Robinson's 17-year-old boyfriend, Da'Jore Williams.
The shooting happened at about 6:30 a.m. in the 6100 block of Earp Court.
Robinson told detectives that she awoke to find Bethea standing over her bed, pointing a handgun at Williams. Bethea then walked over to Williams' side of the bed, began screaming profanities, pointed the gun at his head and fired a single gunshot, according to the sheriff's office.
Bethea ran away but turned herself in on Sunday night.
Williams was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, where he underwent brain surgery and was in critical condition Monday.
Bethea, of 134 Sheila Lane, is also charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and first degree burglary. She is being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $500,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court at 2:30 p.m. Monday.
