An East Spencer man was charged this week with a March shooting incident on Old Wilkesboro Road. Police say he fired into a car and house sending a mother and her son ducking for cover.

Salisbury Police charged D’Andre Treshaun (Deandre Treashan) Mitchell, 19, of the 400 block of East Torbush Street, with felony shooting into an occupied dwelling and injury to personal property.

Mitchell was arrested Monday in the 100 block of Pearl Street for the March 22 shooting, a report said.

The victim, Brice Robinson and her son were heading home when they noticed a vehicle was following them near West Innes Street. She continued in the direction of their home and when she got to her driveway, the vehicle stopped about 30 feet from the home.

While the vehicle drove by the home, Robinson and her son got out of the car and ran into the house. As soon as she closed the door, she heard gunshots being fired at them. Robinson and her son got to the floor and she hit the home’s panic alarm.

Police say Robinson’s car was struck six times and her house, two. Mitchell was issued a $50,000 secured bond.

Mitchell has been convicted in 2012 of firing into an occupied dwelling and was just released from prison in December. In 2013, he was convicted of misdemeanor hit and run.

The Salisbury Police, Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marshals Service were involved in the arrest. Police did not detail a motive, but officials believe Robinson’s son and Mitchell know each other.
