BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Investigators in Bladen County have charged a 16-year-old boy with attempted murder after a shooting last month.

The Bladen County Sheriff's Office says Rodriquez Deion McNeil, 16, of 2054 Tar Heel Ferry Rd. in White Oak has been charged with attempted first degree murder and injury to real property after he allegedly shot into a residence at least four times with a shotgun January 7 around 7 p.m.

Investigators say the homeowner reported hearing gunshots outside in her yard. Deputies were called and the shooter could not be located. The following morning as the homeowner was leaving for church, the homeowner saw that her house had been shot several times and deputies were dispatched. The investigation revealed that McNeil was upset at someone who lived in the home, the Sheriff's Office said.

McNeil was arrested along with a 15-year-old after allegedly breaking into a hunting lodge in the White Oak community just before 4 p.m this past Sunday. Detectives say several weapons were taken from the lodge along with a television. Witnesses saw the two subjects and called deputies.

The unnamed juvenile was charged with a juvenile petition.

McNeil is charged with breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of stolen property and injury to real property in the lodge break-in.

Deputies were actively looking for McNeil for the earlier charged when the break-in.

McNeil is the Bladen County Jail under a $1,026,000 secured bond.

Wait for it

I'm sure he is a good boy and he only made a mistake. Gag. Come on all you criminal lovers and defenders, start spouting your nonsense.

Good Bond

A $1,026,000 secured bond? That should hold him for a while. It's about time they start issuing bonds that will hold potential flight risk until trial. Bonds of this nature will also prevent those charged from getting out and seeking revenge prior to trial in an effort to scare people into not coming to court to testify. No further intimidation is fine. Now it would be fine if we could actually put people away for a long time if they are found guilty instead of giving them a slap on the risk claiming they were young and didn't know what they were doing. A baby that can neither walk or talk doesn't know what they are doing. A young person that robs, steals and or beats up other people knows exactly what they are doing and they do not do these things by accident and they don't do them because they had a bad up bringing. They do them because they want to and know they will only get a slap on the wrist if caught.
