Thomas said Pugh was released from Vidant Tuesday and placed in the Craven County Jail where he was served a warrant for first-degree murder.

Pugh is facing additional charges, including the shooting of the other victims, Thomas said. The district attorney also said because the case is still under investigation, he could not discuss how Pugh got the handgun or if it was his.

After the first-degree murder charge and possible sentences were explained to Pugh, Thomas turned to him and asked if he had anything to say. Pugh shook his head.
