A Wilson man faces several charges including attempted first-degree murder in connection to a Feb. 16 shooting in a hotel parking lot.

On Tuesday, Wilson police arrested 22-year-old Cameron M. Hill for his alleged role in the Days Inn parking lot shooting. Hill is charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling and one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and causing injury to personal property, according to Sgt. Steve Stroud.

Hill received a $300,000 secured bond.

On Feb. 16, officers responded to a 2:06 a.m. shots-fired call at Days Inn on Tarboro Street. When officers arrived, they were directed to a room where a party appeared to have happened, police said.

At the same time, officers were contacted about an injured man at Wilson Medical Center related to the incident, according to officials.

Investigators spoke to the victim, 20-year-old Mitchell A. McCoy of Wilson, who was grazed by a bullet, Stroud said. Mitchell told police that he was sitting in a car at the Days Inn when shots were fired and he was struck while sitting in the vehicle, police said.

Multiple men dressed in dark clothing were seen running toward Pizza Hut after the incident, police said.

Officials continue to investigate the shooting.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Wilson Police Department at 252-399-2323 or Crime Stoppers at 252-243-2255.
