LAURINBRG — Police are looking for three men they believe to be involved in last week’s shooting at the intersection of Kinston and Asheville streets.
During the course of the investigation, detectives identified Maurice Deangelo Bostic, Ronshe Gunter and Allen Tremaine Gunter in connection with the shootout that damaged six nearby vehicles and catching residents in the crossfire.
Bostic, 21, of Fairmont Street, is wanted for two counts of assault with a deadly weapon intent to kill, discharging a firearm in city limits, four counts of felony inciting to riot, discharging a weapon into occupied property, going armed to the terror of people, and six counts of injury to personal property.
Gunter, 22, of East Vance Street, is wanted for two counts of assault with a deadly weapon intent to kill, discharging a weapon into occupied property, going armed to the terror of people, discharging a firearm in city limits, felony inciting to riot, felony conspiracy, and six counts of injury to personal property, according to Assistant Police Chief Terry Chavis.
Gunter, 25, of Fairmont Street, is wanted for felony inciting to riot and felony conspiracy.
The shooting occurred Wednesday night at approximately 7:30. Laurinburg police officers responded to a call for multiple shots fired on Kinston Street.
“The information we’ve got on these three is solid. The Housing Authority has video cameras, and we had some witnesses come forward,” Chavis said. “It is still under investigation and we are trying to identify others.”
During the investigation, officers found that six cars on both sides of the street had been struck by bullets.
“Multiple casings were in the found in the roadway next to the vehicles as well as on Asheville Street,” said Capt. Chris Young at the time of the incident.
At least one car and one home in the neighborhood were occupied during the shooting. No one was injured in the incident.
Evidence points to one group of people shooting at another across Kinston and Asheville streets, but police could not say how many were involved.
“Based on the recovered shell casings we know that there was more than one gun, meaning more than one shooter,” Young said.
Anyone with information on the shooting or the whereabouts of those involved is asked to call the Laurinburg Police Department at 910-276-3211, their local law enforcement office, or call 911.
