A suspect wanted for a Friday evening shooting in Pilot Mountain turned himself in to law enforcement officials over the weekend.
Jody Lee Nunn, 24, of 329 Woodville Road in Mount Airy, turned himself in at the Dobson Magistrate’s office at about 2:45 p.m. on Sunday. He was wanted in connection with a shooting early Friday evening at 1367 Carson Road in Pilot Mountain.
Nunn has been charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and is being held at the Surry County Detention Center on $75,000 bond.
According to a written statement released by the Surry County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the 600 block of Hills Presbyterian Church Road at about 5:17 p.m. to find Jack Crump Jr., 36, the apparent victim of a shooting. The victim told deputies that Nunn had shot him in the right leg at the Carson Road residence.
On Saturday Lt. David Hamlin of the Surry County Sheriff’s office said that the two men had some sort of altercation and had an apparent record of assault. However, Hamlin did not elaborate on the circumstances that led to the shooting.
Though Hamlin declined to provide the shooter’s name at that time, he indicated that all surrounding law enforcement agencies had been alerted to the search for Nunn.
Crump was transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where he received treatment for his non-life threatening wound to the right leg.
Nunn is scheduled for his first court appearance on Oct. 13.
