On Tuesday, witnesses said they saw two men arguing when a third man drove up in a silver car, pulled out a gun and fired at a man before driving off. Witnesses say they heard four gun shots fire.

Temoney was wanted by police for first-degree attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and possession of a firearm by a felon. Those charges were among several other failure to appear charges for unrelated crimes.

Temoney is in the New Hanover County Jail under a $1,050,000 secured bond.
