IREDELL COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - A man accused of shooting someone in their driveway in Statesville Sunday night has been located and arrested in Virginia.

Joshua David Dalton was taken into custody in Floyd County on outstanding warrants Wednesday.

The shooting happened just after 8 p.m. outside the victim’s home on Damascus Church Road. Dalton, the accused shooter, fled the scene after the shooting, deputies say.

The victim was taken to a medical facility with minor injuries.

According to the investigation, Dalton and the victim knew each other. Dalton reportedly pulled up to the victim’s home, where he was told he was not welcome and needed to leave. That’s when officials say Dalton pulled a gun from his Jeep, shot the victim and drove off.

The Jeep was recovered Monday morning.

A felony arrest warrant was issued for Dalton for one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. Authorities were able to locate Dalton in Floyd County after learning he had family in the area.
