  • 0

EDEN — Two local residents have been arrested, and police here are seeking a third, Jaqueal Raquan Berger, 23, in connection to a shooting early Friday morning.

According to a report filed by Eden Police Lt. Anthony Lovings, a resident of 625 Riverview Street called 9-1-1 shortly after 4 a.m. Friday morning to report that someone had broken into their home, shot a man, then fled.

When police arrived, they learned there had been a domestic squabble and found Craig McConnell of Greensboro suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a regional trauma center where he was listed in stable condition, authorities said in the report.

Also, while en route to the scene, patrol officers saw a white Nissan Altima traveling at a high rate of speed on Riverside Drive, near Riverview Street. The officers attempted to stop the Altima, but it sped away and a chase began. Eventually, the Altima stopped on N.C. 14 north. As it slowed, a passenger in the rear of the car jumped out and fled on foot.

Eden Police Department officers arrested the driver of the car, Amanda Carter, 42, and another passenger, Marcus Lamont Graves, 31, at the scene.

Carter is charged with feloniously operating a motor vehicle while fleeing/attempting to elude a law enforcement officer. She also is charged with a misdemeanor count of reckless driving to endanger persons/property and one count of failing to stop at a red light.

Carter is being held on a $5,000 secured bond at the Rockingham County Detention Facility in Wentworth. She is scheduled to appear in Rockingham County District Court on Nov. 23.

Graves was arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant for possession of a firearm by a felon. He is being held under a $10,000 secured bond in Rockingham County Jail.

Anyone with information concerning the incident or the whereabouts of Jaqueal Berger is asked to call Det. Aubrie Stoneman at 336-589-5014 or Lt. Lovings at 336-623-9240. To leave an anonymous tip, call Rockingham County Crimestoppers at 336-349-9683.
