ROCKINGHAM — An arrest warrant has been issued for a man wanted in connection to a shooting late last week.

Police say 21-year-old Tyrone Sequine Reynolds shot 24-year-old Howard Everette in the area of the intersection of Armistead and Boone streets early Friday afternoon.

The call on the incident went out around 2:15 and when officers arrived, they say they found Howard appeared to have been shot three times, with wounds to his left leg and abdomen areas.

He was airlifted to UNC Hosptials in Chapel Hill. Investigators say he is stable condition after undergoing surgery for his wounds.

Police obtained a warrant for Reynolds’ arrest Monday afternoon on felony charges of attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

They say Reynolds is considered to be armed and dangerous and anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to call the Rockingham Police Department at 910-895-2468, Richmond County Crime Stoppers at 910-997-5454 or any other local law enforcement agency.

Police also say Reynolds has a pending charge of misdemeanor possession of stolen goods in Wake County.

Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction show he was convicted on multiple felony charges in two counties in 2014.

On Feb. 17 of that year, Reynolds was convicted on four counts of breaking and entering and a single count of possession of a firearm by a felon in Moore County. Later that month, on Feb. 26, he was convicted of breaking and entering motor vehicles in Lee County.

Previous arrest stories show Reynolds with addresses in Southern Pines and Garner.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.
