— Police on Tuesday issued arrest warrants for a Fayetteville man in connection with a weekend shooting outside a sports bar.

Kevin Anthony Joiner, 21, of 3932 Summerfield Lane, is wanted on three counts each of attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

Witnesses told police that an altercation started in Izzy's Sports Bar in Andrews Commons, 150 Andrews Road, early Sunday. A man pulled out a handgun and started firing, striking three people.

One victim had life-threatening injuries and was flown to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, police said. Two others were in critical condition Sunday at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center in Fayetteville.

The identities of the three victims haven't been released, and their conditions were unknown Tuesday.

Police said the gunman fled in a vehicle with two other people. Officers later stopped a vehicle on Ramsey Street matching the description of one seen at the scene of the shooting, but the three people inside jumped out and fled on foot.

Officers used thermal imaging to find one man hiding in a nearby trash bin.

Tony Terrance Moody, 20, of 2716 Daniel Boone Lane, was charged with accessory after the fact of a felony.

Dan Grubb, spokesman for the Fayetteville Police Department, said investigators are looking for one or two other people in the shooting, along with Joiner.

Anyone with information about Joiner's whereabouts or the shooting is asked to call Fayetteville police at 910-483-8477.
