LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A Bessemer City man has been charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle as the driver was leaving a convenience store in Crouse, N.C.

Deputies were dispatched to the incident around 5:20 p.m. on November 1, 2020 after the victim was able to drive a safe distance away and call 9-1-1. The incident occurred at the One Stop Convenience Store at 2912 West Old Highway 150.

Detective Greg Hager and responding deputies determined that the suspect, Grover Bradford Hay, 69, of 213 Hay Drive, Bessemer City fired shots at a vehicle occupied by Samuel Fredell and Brooke Lail who were leaving the store after Mr. Hay confronted Mr. Fredell inside the store while he was at the register. Multiple shots were fired at the vehicle by the suspect from a handgun. The victims did not know the suspect.

A Lincoln County Sheriff’s detective and two Gaston County Police officers located Mr. Hay at his residence and placed him under arrest on two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill. He was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate and placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $100,000 secured bond.
