GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — A man opened fire into a vehicle after he saw his girlfriend in the car with her ex-boyfriend, Greenville police said.

J’Brian Moore, 19, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, discharging a weapon into property and possession of a stolen firearm.

The Greenville Police Department’s Gun Violence Reduction Unit responded to the 400 block of W. 3rd Street at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday in reference to a report of shots fired.

Police found Moore inside an apartment where officers said he told them he saw his girlfriend in a vehicle with her ex-boyfriend and became enraged.
