A shooting occurred in Kinston leaving one person injured and two others who are currently in jail and facing multiple charges. Authorities of the Kinston Police Department says they responded to a call about shots fired Friday at W Caswell Street near N Herritage Street.

Deputies of Lenoir County were near the scene when the call was received and they were able to identify two cars that were involved in the shooting. According to WNCT, “Deputies stopped a silver Chrysler 300 as it was fleeing the scene. In the car were 42-year-old Jeffrey Donell Sutton and 21-year-old Jeffrey Donell Sutton Jr.”

A second car was identified at UNC Lenoir with a victim being dropped off for a possible gunshot wound. Authorities are claiming this incident was targeted because everyone involved in the shooting was familiar with one another.

Donell Sutton Jr. is currently in jail with a 1,000,000 dollar secure bond and Jeffrey Donelle Sutton is also in jail under a 1,200,00 dollar secure bond.

The investigation is currently ongoing. If anyone has information regarding this incident, authorities are asking to call the Kinston Police Department at 252-939-3160, the TIPS LINE at 252-939-4020, or Lenoir County Cime Stopper at 252-523-4444.
