A third man has been charged in connection with a fatal shooting last week, authorities said Monday.
Daniel McCoy Bradley, 38, of 5799 Harmony Grove Road in Nebo, turned himself in at the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office Friday, Oct. 6 and was charged with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and altering, stealing or destroying criminal evidence.
Bradley and three other men went to a garage at 58 Rolling Meadow Drive in Nebo between 12:30 and 1 a.m. last Monday. Some of them began firing shots into the garage. During the shootout, there were four people inside the garage, according to the Sheriff’s Office: Guy Truett Randolph Jr., Alvin Lee Sisk III, Marty Allan Runkle and Allison Bruley.
During an exchange of gunfire, one of the men with Bradley, 33-year-old Joshua Eric Kelley, of 324 Deer Park Resort in Nebo, was shot multiple times in the torso and head and was taken to Memorial Mission Hospital in Asheville. He has since died from his injuries.
There were no other injuries during the incident.
Capt. Shanon Smith of the Sheriff’s Office said, after the shooting, Bradley hid two semi-automatic rifles from investigators. One of them has since been recovered. According to the Sheriff’s Office, there were multiple guns used during the shootout.
On Wednesday, Oct. 4, authorities arrested Michael Allen Spencer, 43, of 616 Linville Road in Nebo, and charged him with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon. The following day, they charged Greggory Cole Lowery, 29, of 616 Linville Road in Nebo, with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and one count each of attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, discharging a weapon into occupied property, discharging a firearm to incite fear and breaking and entering a building to terrorize or injure. Detectives have said that the subjects inside the garage – Randolph, Sisk, Runkle and Bruley – were defending themselves, and it’s not likely they will be charged with Kelley’s death.
No one else was seriously injured.
Bradley was issued a $30,000 bond.
