One victim in serious condition, another released after New Bern triple shooting

Posted: Updated:
NEW BERN, N.C. - A Craven County man is dead and two others injured following a triple shooting Monday morning.

Police say it started with a disturbance in the 2100 block of Alabama Avenue. They got a call about shots fired at 11:15 Monday morning.

When they got to the scene, they found one shooting victim, 26-year-old Andrew L. West of Vanceboro, lying in a yard near Dail Street and Florida Avenue. West was pronounced dead at CarolinaEast Medical Center in New Bern.


They found a second shooting victim, 32-year-old Marcello L. Bryant of Cove City, in a car on Beech Street. Paramedics transported him to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.

Police say a third shooting victim, 29-year-old Terrell Evans of New Bern, checked himself into Carolina East Medical Center.

9 On Your Side contacted hospital officials about the conditions of the two men. They say Bryant is in serious condition. Evans has since been discharged.

"We heard gunshots, and we came outside and there were a whole bunch of sirens and police officers trying to figure out what happened," said Samantha Strain, who lives in the area.

Police took a man on scene to the New Bern Police Department for questioning and identified him as the shooter.

"He is co-operating with law enforcement as the investigation continues and the community has no cause for alarm. At this point in the investigation this appears to be an isolated incident," read a press release from the New Bern Police Department.

Sheryl Eckberg has lived in this neighborhood for more than a decade. She says she's not worried, even though the shooting was close to home.

"I'm very safe still," said Eckberg. "It doesn't bother me because you know, it's not directed at me and there's never been any problems in this neighborhood whatsoever."

Samantha Strain also lives close by. She says bad things happen to good people.

"It's a little unnerving, but this type of stuff happens everywhere all the time, so it's just another day," said Strain.

Eckberg says this neighborhood has always been a safe place, until recently when crime from another neighborhood started spilling into hers.
