— An 18-year-old man was arrested in the Wednesday morning shooting of a 44-year-old Mebane man in Garner, according to the Wake County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators believe that Vonterio Elroy Best, of Goldsboro, shot Glen Wallace at 4613 Barrington Hills Drive around 2:30 a.m. Wallace suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to WakeMed in Raleigh.

Best was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
