LAURINBURG, NC (WMBF) – Laurinburg police are looking for a suspect who is wanted in connection with two separate shootings.

According to a press release from the Laurinburg Police Department, officers responded to Tuskeegee Drive on Feb. 10 in reference to shots fired.

The suspect, Teon Trevareus Thomas, allegedly fired several shots at a passing vehicle. Inside were six people, two of whom were children, the release stated.

Then, on March 26, police responded to an address on Gill Street in Laurinburg for another shots-fired call.

The same suspect is accused of firing three shots into a home occupied by four adults.

There were no injuries in either of the incidents.

Warrants have been obtained for Thomas charging him with one count each of discharging a firearm at a moving conveyance and discharging charging a firearm into occupied property, and two counts each of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and discharging a firearm in the city limits.

Thomas, 20, is described as standing 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds, according to the LPD. He is known to frequent Laurinburg, East Laurinburg and Maxton.
