Deputy injured in Davidson Co. shooting identified, one suspect in custody
DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — Three people were injured in a deputy-involved shooting at a home Thursday morning in Davidson County.
Deputies said it happened around 7:30 a.m. at a mobile home park on Northpoint Drive off Highway 150 near Lexington.
Deputies responded to a reported home invasion and found two residents and an armed male suspect inside, according to Davidson County Sheriff David Grice.
Authorities said the suspect assaulted one of the people living there and then opened fire on the deputies, who shot back.
The resident, suspect and deputy were all taken to the hospital with injuries. Grice said the injured deputy – Deputy Charlie Goforth – is expected to be okay after suffering a non-life-threatening injury to the foot.
Grice did not go into detail about the suspect or his injuries, but said the man is in surgery and in serious condition.
Other arriving deputies located a female in an automobile parked up the street from the location of the home invasion. During the course of their investigation, deputies developed information which lead to the arrest of the female suspect.
Terina Lane Billings, 27, of East Bend, was charged with two counts of first degree kidnapping, one count of first degree burglary, one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon, one count of assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, one count of assault with a deadly weapon on a government official and one count of assault on a law enforcement officer with a firearm.
Billings was placed under a $2 million secured bond.
The male suspect who was sent to the hospital has not been charged at this time.
The investigations are being conducted separately. Davidson County deputies are handling the home invasion while the state is looking into the deputy-involved shooting.
