ASHEBORO, N.C. — Two women have been hospitalized following a shooting into an occupied vehicle in Asheboro on Tuesday.

Police responded to the 300 block of Coleridge Road on Tuesday in reference to someone shooting into an occupied vehicle.

Upon arrival, police encountered Christopher Darnell Alsbrook and arrested him for the shooting.

Alsbrook, 24, of Ramseur, is charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and discharging a weapon into occupied property.

Officers also were able to recover two firearms at the scene.

At about the same time, two females were dropped off at Randolph Hospital suffering from gunshot wounds. One female was shot in the leg while the other was shot in the head. Both injuries have been characterized as non-life-threatening.

Further investigation revealed that the incident started as an argument over the sale of a stolen weapon. Dustin Luke Chavis, the person that dropped the women off at Randolph Hospital, is alleged to have sold two stolen firearms to Alsbrook.

At some point after the sale, Alsbrook confronted Chavis and fired six times into a moving vehicle, striking the two women.

Chavis, 23, of Ramseur, was arrested and charged with possession of a stolen firearm.

Alsbrook and Chavis are both confined in the Randolph County Jail.
