Body

Shots were fired into a house on North Kerr Avenue Monday night. Deputies tell WWAY two men pulled up to the house and got into an argument with someone who lived there.

The victim told police two black men came into the house, took some cash, fired two shots at him and fled. A next door neighbor said he heard shooting and then saw one of the men take off with the victim’s car. “All we heard was two shots and I was joking around saying, ‘Someone got shot,’ and we see a boy jump the fence,” said Timothy Watkins. “We ran through the house to see what’s going on. There were two guys standing right there with a gun. They tried to leave, stole his car, and took off.”

Wilmington Police found one of the cars involved just a few miles away in the 4300 block of Fairlawn Drive.

Twenty-seven-year-old Corie Jaquan Batts and twenty-two-year-old David Davon Kearse, both of Wilmington, were found in the victim’s vehicle with a handgun and the stolen cash.

Batts and Kearse have been charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling, assault with a deadly weapon and larceny of a motor vehicle. They are in the New Hanover County Jail under $75,000 secured bonds.
