— Fayetteville police arrested a 30-year-old man Saturday who investigators say fired shots into a home on Morehead Avenue early Thursday, narrowly missing a sleeping infant.

Trellis Buie is charged with shooting into an occupied dwelling and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

According to police, Buie went to a home at 1615 Morehead Ave. at about 8:45 a.m. with the intent to cause a disturbance. He was confronted by two people inside who asked him to leave the property. Buie then went to his car, grabbed a handgun and fired shots in the direction of the home.

No injuries were reported, but authorities said one of the bullets missed a sleeping infant by about 4 inches.

Buie was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $150,000 bond.

    Something really needs to be done to get these folks off of the streets who really have no value for life.

    I'm glad that the innocent baby was not hurt! I'm sorry but acts like this are an act of a coward, Not a real man. If you have a problem with somebody, Handle it like real men would. With their fists. Leave the other mans family out of it and settle with him only. Oh but it's so easy to pull a gun and shoot at them. Just pathetic.
