BAILEY — Sheriff’s deputies say a resident shot a Wilson County man accused of breaking into his home and attacking a woman with a hammer. 

Jose Luiz Arizpe, 34, of 5512 N.C. 42 E. outside Elm City, is charged with first-degree burglary and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Arizpe allegedly broken into a home at 7996 Old Middlesex Road around 11 p.m. Monday. A man and woman were inside the home, Chief Deputy Brandon Medina of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. 

“Arizpe is reported to have assaulted the female occupant of the residence with a construction hammer,” Medina said.

A man inside the home, a North Carolina concealed carry permit holder, fired several gunshots at Arizpe. 

“There were no children inside of the residence at the time,” Medina said.

Officers with the Bailey Police Department secured the scene until deputies and Nash County Emergency Medical Services personnel arrived, Medina said.

Arizpe received emergency first aid and was taken to WakeMed Health for medical treatment. He was in surgery and was in stable condition early Tuesday, Medina said.

Detectives are investigating the home invasion, assault and shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call the Nash County Sheriff’s Office at 252-459- 4121 or Twin County Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111.
