Less than a half-hour after someone shot into an occupied home on Sampson Street Monday afternoon, Clinton police had a suspect in custody and K-9 Junior had tracked and located the weapon believed involved in the incident.
Christopher Jarrod McDoe, 22, of 4871 Boykin Bridge Road, Clinton, was taken into custody and charged with two felonies — discharging a weapon into occupied property and possession of a stolen firearm — and one misdemeanor, discharging a firearm inside the city limits. He was jailed under a $50,000 bond and remained behind bars late Tuesday afternoon.
McDoe was located about 20 or 30 minutes after officers were called to Sampson Homes where a 43-year-old woman reported that someone had fired into her home.
The victim said her daughter was taking a shower when she heard shots being fired shortly after 2:30 p.m. The bullet, reports show, traveled through the bedroom window into a wall and into the bathroom near the shower. No one was injured in the incident.
The suspect was apprehended after information led officers to a Tyndall Court residence.
The gun was located in the area of the shooting after additional information led officers to believe the suspect likely disposed of the weapon before going to the Tyndall Court location.
K-9 Junior was sent into the area to track the weapon and discovered it in the wood line.
McDoe is scheduled to make his first appearance in Sampson District Court July 5.
