Two drive-by shootings in Davie County last month have resulted in seven arrests.

The shootings were not random, said Davie Sheriff J.D. Hartman. At least one of the suspects told investigators they were a member of the Rolling Green Gang (RGG).

It stemmed from some type of disagreement.

Multiple shots from a rifle were fired into a house occupied by one person on US 601 North, Mocksville, the night of Jan. 15. That same night, a shot was fired into a residence on Gunter Lane, also in northwestern Davie. Several people were in that home, Hartman said.

No injuries were reported from the shootings. The shooters fired from the vehicle on US 601 North, and parked nearby and walked to the Gunter Lane home before firing a shot.

Hartman said the shootings were retaliation for something people had done who were supposed to be in those residences at the time. One was occupied by a targeted person, the other was not.

Samuel Lucas White, 28,  who lived at the Gunter Lane address and reported one of the shootings, was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and assault by pointing a gun. His bond was set at $20,000.

Brittany Nicole Coone, 18, of Hickory, was charged with two counts of accessory by the fact. Her bond was set at $25,000. She is accused of helping plan at least one of the shootings, Hartman said.

Charged with discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling were: Tyler Shrewsberry, 19, of Woodlee Drive, Advance, $150,000 bond; Shanbrody Lee Pearce, 20, of Clemmons, $150,000 bond; William Reece Welch, 17, of Speaks Road, Advance, bond $25,000; Kevin James Lafferty, 20, of Winston-Salem; and Anthony Joseph Pardue, 19, of Clemmons.

Hartman said when officers served a warrant on Pardue, they discovered a marijuana operation, where it appeared that large amounts of marijuana were brought there and re-packaged for sale. Forsyth County is handling that investigation.
