Rodney Gibbs was arrested a day after he was charged with shooting two men in a Havelock hotel parking lot.
According to the Havelock police, Gibbs, 37, of Havelock, shot both Joseph Vachon, 38, and Stevn Todd, 30, both of Havelock, in the leg around 7:10 p.m. Wednesday at the Sunset Inn on Nunn Street. The men were both transported to CarolinaEast Medical Center for treatment, and arrest warrants issued for Gibbs.
According to Bridgeton police, a resident appeared at the Bridgeton Shell Station and stated that Gibbs was at 586 East Bridge St. in town. The resident then called Bridgeton police and the sheriff's office.
The Bridgeton officer also contacted the Craven County Sheriff's Office, as the address, while considered Bridgeton, is technically in county jurisdiction. Officers from each department, as well as Probation and Parole, met and then arrived at the address around 10 p.m. Thursday and arrested Gibbs without incident, according to the release.
Gibbs has been charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, and one count of a felon in possession of a firearm and jailed on a $2 million bond.
A motive for the shooting was not released.
