Man accused of shooting two teens in Burlington

BURLINGTON, N.C. — A man was arrested after police say he shot two teens in Burlington Thursday night.

Officers responded to a home on Perry Circle around 10:21 p.m. where they found a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old suffering from gunshot wounds.

Police say the shooting spurred from a physical fight between the 16-year-old and a 15-year-old. The 15-year-old left the home and returned with 22-year-old Tyson Lamar Goins.

Goins produced a shotgun and shot at the door of the home, striking both theĀ 15-year-old and 16-year-old who were still inside, police say.

The 16-year-old was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The 15-year-old was taken to the hospital by his parents.

Goins and the 15-year-old were later located and arrested by police.

Goins, of Burlington, is charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. He is in the Alamance County Jail under a $233,050 bond.

The 15-year-old was taken to the Guilford County Juvenile Detention Facility pending his appearance in Juvenile Court.

Anyone with information on this investigation is asked to contact the Burlington Police Department at 336-229-3500 or Alamance County Crime Stoppers at 336-229-7100.
