A Woodleaf teen was arrested last week for the shooting of a homeless man in rural Davie County.

Brittany Wilson, 17, was charged by the Davie County Sheriff’s Department with attempted first-degree murder. She was taken into custody in lieu of a $750,000 bond.

Sheriff’s Chief J.D. Hartman declined to give specifics of the arrests, saying the investigation is continuing.

Justin Mobley, 24, had called Davie 911 on July 24, saying he was on a gravel drive and had been shot. Authorities tracked the cell phone call, and found Mobley in the drive to Farmington Pet Cemetery off Wyo Road. He had been shot several times, and offered little information as to what had happened.
