Three people were arrested Wednesday for their involvement in a shooting into a home, according to the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office.

Just after midnight on January 2, deputies received a call of shots fired into an occupied dwelling on Normandy Park Road in Lenoir. The victim told the deputies the group had shot into his home at him and left the scene in gold in color Ford Taurus.

A lookout was issued for the vehicle, and it was spotted a short time later on Legion Road at Little Gunpowder Creek Drive by officers with the Hudson Police Department, the report states.

Hudson Police, assisted by Troopers from the North Carolina State Highway Patrol and Caldwell County Sheriff's Deputies stopped the vehicle on Spring Street in Hudson.

Caldwell County Sheriff's Office Detectives responded to the scene and located the firearm used in the shooting, and collected evidence from the incident location and the vehicle.

Rogers, 22, were arrested and charged with attempted first degree burglary, discharging a firearm into an occupied residence, assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill, assault by pointing a gun, open container in a motor vehicle, and injury to real property.

They are being held at the Caldwell County Detention Center on a $150,000 bond.

The driver of the vehicle, Maxine B. Pearson, 43, was charged with accessory to a felony and is being held on a $50,000 bond.
