KPD: Suspect Charged For September Shooting That Left One Injured

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.
