Investigators arrested Zachary McMillian, 24, of the 2400 block of Milk Dairy Road in Red Springs on one county of shooting into an occupied vehicle. The charge is a felony.

Officers were called to the 1600 block of Hall Road in Shannon around 11:30 p.m. March 26 in reference to a shooting.

“It was discovered that a vehicle operated by Mark Chavis had been shot into by Zachary McMillian after a verbal altercation,” the sheriff’s office said in a press release.

Chavis was not injured in the shooting, authorities said.

Deputies took McMillian into custody. He was held under a $15,000 secured bond.
