HIGH POINT, N.C. — Three men were arrested after High Point Police say a house on Cassell Street was shot into 'at least' 17 times on Sunday.
Raekwon Blocker, Adones Vanderhall and Laequan Little were arrested on Monday in connection with the case. Blocker was arrested by High Point Police and the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. This is the second time in recent months that Vanderhall has been charged with a shooting/weapons offense.
Witnesses are convinced they heard more than 17 shots.
Witnesses WFMY News 2 spoke with say two kids, as young as 7 and 8, were ducking for their lives and bawling their eyes out as the barrage of bullets hit.
Police say no one was hurt.
Folks in the neighborhood said the noise of the bullets were so loud –you could hear it 10 blocks away.
At least one person says he was outside when police say two suspects opened fire. Even more people were inside the house on the 1000 block of Cassell Street.
Bullets hit the walls in the living room, hallway, and bedroom, and shattered windows.
Police say at least 30 shell casings were found around the house and roadway.
Police believe two suspects got out of a silver sedan with tinted windows and opened fire with rifles in the middle of the road.
Police say another home nearby was also shot, but not as many times.
The motive for the shooting isn't clear.
Vanderhall and Little had their first court appearance on Tuesday. Blocker did not appear.
We're told Blocker already has a court date on August 5 for multiple pending charges.
Vanderhall's next court appearance will be July 26, and Little's will be September 6.
