2 arrested after woman shot more than 15 in Fayetteville; Duo tried to hide bullet holes in the car with duct tape
FAYETTEVILLE, NC (WNCN) — A man who fired more than a dozen shots at a woman in Fayetteville Sunday was arrested and his car was found with duct tape in places to cover up various bullet holes, officials said Monday.
The woman who was shot was found unharmed but was also arrested on a number of charges, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.
Five firearms, 24.59 grams of ecstasy and various needles and cash were found in the car when the couple was arrested, MPs said.
According to a press release from the sheriff’s office, the entire ordeal began just before 11:30 a.m. Sunday at the Coliseum Inn at 2507 Gillespie St. in Fayetteville.
Dustin Goode, 29, of Fayetteville, fired “at least 15 shots” at a woman in the parking lot of the Coliseum Inn, which is just off East Mountain Road near the Crown Coliseum Complex, the press release said.
MPs said the woman who was shot may be April Gowin, 33, of Raeford. MPs also said they believed she was in danger.
After the shots rang out, the woman got into a white Buick with Goode and they fled, the press release said.
A tip to MPs about the Buick’s location came in after someone saw a social media post about the incident.
Goode, Gowin and the Buick were found in Sampson County around 4 p.m. Sunday by deputies from the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office. The pair were stopped along Five Bridge Road near Knotty Pine Lann in Clinton, Sampson County lawmakers said.
“Goode and Gowin were attempting to cover the bullet holes in the vehicle with tape when they were found,” a press release said Monday. MPs also released photos of the Buick taped to a window and rear roofline.
They were both taken into custody on outstanding warrants from Cumberland, Hoke and Sampson counties, the press release said.
For Sunday’s incident, Goode faces charges of possession of a firearm by a criminal, attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, officials said.
Gowin is being held in Sampson County on 16 counts, including possession of cocaine and possession of a firearm by a criminal, prison records show.
Goode faces other charges in Sampson County, including possession with intent to sell/supply MDA known as ecstasy, records show.
