— Goldsboro police are searching for two men charged with attempted murder in connection with an Aug. 26 drive-by shooting.

Police said that two men in a vehicle opened fire on a vehicle occupied by Shonshi Chavez and Marcus Johnson along Hooks River Road.

Johnson was struck several times, police said. He was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital, then airlifted to Pitt Regional Memorial Hospital in Greenville.

Arrest warrants have been issued against Trevis Stephen Kinsey, 21, of 209 Fussell St., and Kelvin James Jr., 21, of 704 Pittman St.

Anyone with information on these men was asked to call police investigators at 919-580-4214 or Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.

State Department of Correction records show that James has been sentenced to probation twice this year, and Kinsey was released from jail less than a year ago.

James has 2010 convictions for second-degree trespassing and larceny and prior convictions for carrying a concealed weapon, possessing stolen goods and resisting an officer, according to records.

Kinsey recently served a six-month sentence in 2009 for violating his probation stemming from convictions for dealing drugs, assault on a female and resisting an officer. DOC records show that he also received a three-month sentence for violating probation for 2006 convictions for disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.
