CAMDEN — Camden Sheriff Tony Perry said Thursday that investigators are working to get to the bottom of “a very complicated situation” that led to three area men facing charges Wednesday night in connection with a vehicle chase that included one motorist firing gunshots.
In addition, two of those arrested were cited for alleged drug offenses.
Perry said in a press release that the men were arrested after Camden deputies received a report of suspicious activity in the Shiloh area shortly after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Deputies’ investigation determined that one vehicle was chasing another and shots were fired by the operator of one of the vehicles, Perry said.
No injuries were reported and the investigation of the incident continues, Perry said. The sheriff said it could be several days before investigators were able to sort out the complex incident enough to release additional information.
The three men arrested include:
* Terry Wayne Rose, 48, of the 100 block of Edgewater Drive, Camden, who was charged with felony assault with intent to kill, felony speeding to elude arrest, misdemeanor impersonating a law enforcement officer and misdemeanor resisting, delaying and obstructing a law enforcement officer. Rose was being held at Albemarle District Jail in lieu of a $250,000 secured bond.
* Daquan Tyrie Whidbee, 23, of the 200 block of Oak Grove Ave., Elizabeth City, who was charged with felony conspiracy to sell and deliver schedule IV of a controlled substance described as Xanax. He was released from jail after posting a $5,000 secured bond.
* Tre’shon Shabazz Walker, 24, of the 410 Calvert St., Elizabeth City, who was charged with felony conspiracy to sell and deliver schedule IV of a controlled substance and felony possession of cocaine. He was being detained at Albemarle District Jail in lieu of a $15,000 secured bond.
Assisting the Camden Sheriff’s Office in apprehending the three men were members of the N.C. Highway Patrol, the Pasquotank Sheriff’s Office and the Elizabeth City Police Department, Perry said.
