A Wilson man faces four attempted murder charges after police say he fired gunshots at a house and car Wednesday.

Officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Lane Street Southeast after someone reported shots fired at a home, Wilson Police Department spokesman Sgt. Eric Kearney said in a news release.

“As officers arrived, they located damage to an unrelated van in a driveway,” Kearney said. “Two juvenile victims were located unharmed from the shots being fired.”

Kearney said officers gathered information at the scene and determined a silver sport utility vehicle was involved.

“After the description was broadcast, officers were able to locate the vehicle, a 2017 Ford Escape, unoccupied in the 1100 block of Elizabeth Road West,” Kearney said. “The vehicle was determined to be stolen from Rocky Mount.”

Officers searched the area around the vehicle and found 20-year-old Michael Demane Mack II of Wilson along with a 14-year-old.

Police charged Mack with six counts of felony discharging a firearm from an enclosure or motor vehicle, five counts of felony discharging a weapon into occupied property, four counts of felony attempted first-degree murder and one count each of felony possession of a stolen motor vehicle, felony possession of a stolen firearm and misdemeanor causing injury to personal property.

Mack was jailed under a $1 million secured bond and remained in the Wilson County Detention Center on Thursday afternoon.

Kearney said no one was injured in the Wednesday shooting.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Wilson Police Department at 252-399-2323 or Crime Stoppers at 252-243-2255.
