$100K bond for man suspected of firing gunshot during ENC high school football game
A gunshot was fired at the Wallace Rose Hill versus James Kenan High School football game in Wallace Friday night, with just seconds left on the scoreboard, and on Sunday a suspect was arrested and charged.
Wallace Police Department officials said the shot was fired during an altercation between spectators and nobody was hurt.
On Sunday, the Duplin County Sheriff’s Office arrested the suspect that is believed to be responsible for the shooting.
Rajon Faison, a 20-year-old man from Warsaw, is charged with discharging a firearm, inciting a riot, carrying a concealed firearm on school property and disorderly conduct.
His bond was set at $100,000 secured.
The game, which had just 24 seconds left, resumed Saturday and spectators were allowed to attend. Wallace Rose Hill beat James Kenan 38-31 in overtime.
Two weeks ago, on October 14, a person was wounded in a shooting at Dudley High School in Greensboro shortly after the football game ended.
