Shooting In Dudley Home Leaves One Injured

Bond is set at $600,000 for a suspect in a Dudley shooting that left one person injured.

Wayne County deputies and EMS responded to a home on the 200 block of Blue Ridge Drive after 8 PM Monday.  The patrol deputies were met by 20-year-old Nakia L. Atkins of the residence, who already had his hands in the air.  Inside the home, deputies found another resident, 43-year-old Ronaza E. Bunn, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.  Bunn was taken to Wayne UNC Health Care and was later transported to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.

Three other residents, an adult male, an adult female and a 4-year-old, were also inside the home.  The adults informed crime scene personnel that several shots had been fired inside the home at multiple individuals with only Bunn being struck.  There was no information on why the shooting occurred.

Atkins was detained and transported to the Sheriff’s Annex building to be interviewed. During his stay at the Annex, he experienced a medical emergency and was transported to Wayne UNC Health Care. He has since been released.  Atkins is charged with one count of Attempted First Degree Murder and two counts of Assault with a Deadly Weapon with the Intent to Kill.  He was placed in the Wayne County Detention Center.
