— Johnston County sheriff's deputies arrested an Angier man Sunday night after he allegedly opened fire on his two brothers after an argument erupted at a house on N.C. Highway 210.

Anthony Sosa, 21, was charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to inflict serious harm, two counts of injury to personal property and one count of first-degree burglary, authorities said. He was being held at the Johnston County jail under a $250,000 bond Monday.

Sosa's brothers, whose names were not released, were treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.  

Authorities were called to 9779 N.C. 210 shortly after 10:30 p.m. in response to a shooting. Deputies said two brothers were arguing inside the house when Sosa came from a barn on the property with a shotgun and began shooting at a car and through the windows of the house. He eventually went inside, authorities said, and fired at least 20 rounds altogether.
