ASHEBORO N.C. — Two suspects who allegedly fired into a Randleman home earlier this week have been arrested and charged by the Sheriff’s Office. 

On March 5th, 2024, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office responded to Wicker Lovell Rd., in Randleman after receiving numerous calls about shots being fired in the area.  

According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, one of those callers told dispatchers that their home had been hit and they identified a white four-door vehicle that was driving by at the time.  

When deputies arrived, they located fired ammunition casings along the roadway. Crime Scene Investigations and Criminal Investigations Division responded to collect evidence and investigate further. 

The investigation led deputies and detectives to a home on Whites Memorial Rd where the suspect vehicle was located.  

The Sheriff’s Office was able to obtain warrants for the suspects identified in the press release as 18-year-old Matthew Kelly Flinchum and 52-year-old Charles Edman Moran, Jr. for felony discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling/moving vehicle and misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.

Both were arrested and transported to the Randolph County Detention Center where they were served their warrants. Flinchum received a $75,000 secured bond and Moran received a $100,000 secured bond.   

A first appearance was set for March 6, 2024, in Randolph County District Court. The investigation is ongoing and further charges may be forthcoming.
