— Goldsboro police arrested a 17-year-old on Monday and charged him with attempted first-degree murder in connection with an Aug. 26 shooting in the 1900 block of Day Circle.

Authorities arrested Larry Maurice Saunders at 416 Miller Ave. The 17-year-old, who lives at 106 Day Circle, was taken into custody without incident, according to police. He was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of a $1 million secure bond.

The charge stems from an investigation into the Aug. 26 shooting in which Javon Thomas Young was shot in the lower back. He was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital and airlifted to Pitt Memorial Hospital for further treatment, according to police.
