The fourth person suspected in a shooting incident near Buies Creek earlier this month has been taken into custody.

According to the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office, 36-year-old Courtney Lamar Elliott of Lillington turned himself into officials early Monday morning.

He now faces attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injuries, felony conspiracy to commit murder and seven counts of discharging a weapon into occupied property.

He was jailed under a $1 million secured bond in the Harnett County Detention Center.

Elliott is the last suspect named in an incident that took place on Oct. 9 at a mobile home on Randall Lane near Buies Creek.

He, along with 42-year-old Lynetta Greene Harrington of Lillington, is accused of firing shots into the back wall and window of a mobile home where two men — James McNeill, 38, of Lillington and Steven Switzer, 33, of Zebulon ­— were inside. Both men were struck by bullets and were later treated and released from WakeMed in Raleigh with non-life threatening injuries.

Harrington and a third suspect, Diamond Lesane, 18, of Angier were arrested two days after the incident. Harrington faces the same charges as Elliott while Lesane was charged with accessory after the fact.

Harrington was jailed on a $400,000 secured bond and Lesane was jailed on a $50,000 secured bond.
