Shots fired leads to car chase

Saturday, January 26th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Deputies arrived at 7212 Morley Ct. around 9 o’clock Friday night after reports of possible gun shots fired. 27-year-old Phillip Michael Donaldson II was inside the home and in possession of a handgun and long gun. He had fired the gun towards the ground on his property. Deputies advised Donaldson of county ordinances against discharging a firearm in the county. He agreed that he would not discharge the firearm again.

However, Deputies were called back to the same address for possible shots fired early Saturday morning. This time, Donaldson was not as cooperative. Deputies who were in the neighborhood already arrived Donaldson’s home to see him getting into his vehicle and driving away. Deputies pursued Donaldson on Highway 17 heading North towards Hampstead, with the company of other units from the Pender County Sheriff’s Office, Surf City Police, and NCSHP. All units were trying to stop Donaldson who was driving carelessly and recklessly. It was not until Donaldson ran his vehicle into a ditch near Surf City that Deputies could take him into custody.

Donaldson was taken to Pender County Jail pending charges. All New Hanover County charges are pending as well.
