The first incident occurred January 12 at Lewis and Virgil

streets in Whiteville, when one man was injured and Brice Pridgen sent to jail. Antonio Alex Dobie, Bradley O’Brian Pridgen and Davis were later arrested by Whiteville Police. Each was charged with going armed to the terror of the public and firing into an occupied dwelling or vehicle.

Davis’ bond was set at $750,000 in that case, but that was later reduced by a judge. He and Pridgen were out on bond at the time of the May 6 shooting.
