Police said around 12:20 a.m. on Sunday, they responded to a shots fired call at the Wilson County Fairgrounds in Wilson. Upon arrival, officers found three individuals who had been shot.

According to CBS 17, the Wilson Police Department confirmed on Wednesday that they have arrested and charged 18-year-old Braulio Fuentes-Martinez with several counts of attempted first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, and possession of a stolen firearm.
Witnesses told the police that they were celebrating a birthday party when Braulio arrived uninvited.
