• Teen arrested in Rocky Mount church shooting


    ong> - (AP) -- Rocky Mount police have arrested a teenager in the shooting of four youths earlier this week at a church playground.

    Police say 17-year-old Shyheim Collins of Rocky Mount is charged as an adult with four counts of attempted 1st degree murder after more than a dozen bullets were sprayed Monday into a crowd playing basketball at the Word Tabernacle Church.

    Collins was being held Friday morning in the Nash County jail under a $4 million bond. He had not yet been assigned an attorney.

    Twelve-year-old Nyreek Horne remains in critical condition after being shot in the head. Three other young males shot -- ages 13, 17 and 19 -- were all treated and released.

    Police have not yet suggested a motive, but say they expect to make other arrests.
