A suspect is charged for a drive-by shooting in Kinston.  On March 10, Kinston Police officers responded to the 700 block of Dixon Street in reference to a shooting. Upon arrival, officers were notified a 26-year-old male had been shot in the leg and transported himself to UNC-Lenoir Hospital.  The victim was treated for his bullet wound and subsequently released.   Last week Wednesday, Kinston Police officers obtained an arrest warrant on 20-year-old Brandon Tripp of Kinston for Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill Inflicting Serious Injury and Discharge a Firearm from an Enclosure to Incite Fear (drive-by shooting).  Trip was arrested and placed in the Lenoir County Detention Center.
