Police: Man arrested after officers catch him with loaded glock in hand

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police say ShotSpotter alerts led them to a man who was caught firing a glock within Wilmington city limits, leaving a bullet hole in his neighbor’s home.

They say officers got an alert for shots fired in the 100 block of N. 31st Street, which were picked up from about three blocks away. Police say when officers first got to the area, they then heard an additional activation from ShotSpotter, alerting them to the 200 block of 31st Street.

That’s where police say they spotted James Aaron Jinwright, Jr., 38, walk from behind a van with a glock pistol in his hand. After officers told Jinwright to drop the gun, they arrested him and found PCP in his possession. Police say they also discovered a fresh bullet hole in a neighbor’s car, which was across the street, along with two shell casings nearby.

They say Jinwright appeared impaired at the time of his arrest. He is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, discharging a firearm within city limits, property damage and possession of a schedule II drug.
