ROBESON COUNTY, NC (WMBF) - One man was arrested Tuesday after he escaped from jail barefoot and shackled.

Hakeem Johnson was arrested at the Robeson County Sheriff's Office Tuesday morning. Law enforcement would not say if Johnson turned himself in or not.

Johnson is being charged with discharging a firearm into occupied property and possession of a firearm by a felon. His bond is set at $500,000.

Johnson is expected to face more charges.

Investigators are not saying how 23-year-old Hakeem Johnson got away from deputies on Friday night, while he was being questioned about a shooting.

According to the Robeson County Sheriff's Office, Johnson had something to do with a shooting that happened in Shannon, North Carolina.

Investigators say during the incident, a woman was home with her two kids when a man started firing at the home.

Several bullet holes were found at the scene, yet no one was hurt.

The sheriff's office says that's not the only shooting incident Johnson is connected to, but wouldn't go into detail about the other cases.

A spokesperson with the sheriff's office would not go into details about Johnson's escape, but we do know he was not inside the detention center when he got away.
