A Mocksville man is in custody after fighting with, then shooting into the residence of his former partner.

Tevin Anthony, 26, of Pepperstone Trail, Mocksville, was charged by Mocksville Police with assault on a female, violation of a domestic violence protection order, discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling, breaking and entering with the intent to terrorize or injure the occupants, and possession of marijuana. He was being held in the Davie Detention Center on a 48-hour domestic violence hold.

The call came in to 911 from a Spring Street residence at about 3:20 a.m. Sunday, reported Mocksville Police Officer Samuel Slyman.

He found the victim outside and crying.

He said the inside of the house was a “mess,” with broken beer bottles, an overturned grill and fresh blood in several places. The back door appeared to have been broken into.

The victim said she heared gunshots as Anthony was fleeing. Slyman found a gunshot hole through a window, and a witness also confirmed a shot was fired.

At 5 a.m., a call came in about a stranded motorist on US 64 East near Cornatzer Road. The description fit the suspect, and he was arrested at the scene. He was bleeding from the mouth.

Anthony said that although he knew about the no contact order, he had every right to be at the residence because his name was also on the lease. He admitted to kicking in the back door, and said he fired a shot because another person left the house with the intent to assault him.

He is scheduled to face the charges at a first-appearance hearing on Nov. 12 in Davie District Court.
