Kinston Police arrest a suspect for a September shooting that sent one person to the hospital.
The KPD responded to the 700 block of W. Highland Avenue on September 15th for a call reporting shots fired. Officers were later informed 27-year-old Tyreke Mills of Kinston had arrived at UNC Lenoir Hospital with non-life threatening gunshot wounds.
Two days later, the Kinston P.D. arrested 24-year-old Nigel Wiggins of Kinston who was placed into the Lenoir County Detention Center to await federal prosecution for Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
Since that time, officers have reportedly found additional evidence linking Wiggins to the September 15th shooting. On Wednesday, Wiggins was charged with Attempted Murder and Discharging a Firearm into an Occupied Dwelling.
