Deputies have arrested two J.H. Rose High School students in connection to Wednesday’s shooting near D.H. Conley High School.
Warrants show that 17-year-old C-Allah Mysun Coombs Jr. was arrested on Friday and 17-year-old Jeffrey Charles Gough was arrested Saturday.
Documents show that Coombs is the alleged shooter, having discharged a 45 caliber handgun into the school, while students were inside. Deputies say the shots were fired from off school grounds, near the entrance of the school on Worthington Road.
Warrants show that both suspects knowingly possessed a 45 caliber handgun on J.H. Rose High School property. A spokeswoman with the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office says they then left J.H. Rose property and fired from a vehicle at D.H. Conley.
Warrants show that Gough became an accessory after the fact, for assisting Coombs in an attempt to escape after the crime was committed, by driving him away from the scene. He also allegedly failed to notify a Pitt County Sheriff’s Sergeant that he had done so during a traffic stop, on Wednesday, the day of the shooting.
Coombs is charged with felony discharging a weapon into occupied property, for having a gun on educational property, which is a felony, and misdemeanor going armed to the terror of people.
Gough is charged with felony accessory after the fact, as well as having a gun on educational property, also a felony.
Warrants show that Coombs’ birthday was the day before he allegedly committed the shooting.
Warrants state that both are due in court on Monday, the 14th. They are both under $25,000 bond
