ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. (WBTW) — A man is facing multiple charges after a person was hurt in a shooting Thursday afternoon that led to a lengthy standoff with authorities in Robeson County, deputies said.
Brock E. Chavis, 36, of Lumberton, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill; two counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied vehicle; and possession of a stolen vehicle. He is being held at the Robeson County Detention Center.
Robeson County deputies responded at about 1 p.m. to a home in the area of McKinnon Rollin Road and Highway 211 E. near Lumberton where they found a 53-year-old with a gunshot wound. The person was taken to the hospital but is expected to survive.
