The names of the victims in a Sunday morning shooting were released Monday afternoon but other details of the case were sealed in court.
Tykevious Owan Thomas, 27, of 3793 Bessie Willis Lane in Vale, was charged with two counts of felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill/inflicting serious injury in the shooting of India Weaver and Davian Shull, according to a release from the Burke County Sheriff’s Office.
One of the victims has been released from a hospital, while the other was in critical but stable condition Monday afternoon, the release said.
Thomas was charged after the Burke County Communications Center received a call from the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office about a man calling 911 to report a breaking and entering at around 7 a.m. Sunday, the release said. While on the phone with the caller, Catawba County dispatchers heard numerous gunshots in the background, the release said. When deputies arrived at the scene at 6453 Lostkey Drive, Shull and Weaver were found with gunshot wounds.
At around 8 a.m., the Hickory Police Department told BCSO that Thomas had turned himself in at their department for his involvement in the shooting, the release said.
Thomas initially was given a $500,000 secured bond for allegedly shooting the two women, according to a release from District Attorney Scott Reilly’s office.
Prosecutors filed a motion Monday to revoke the bond, with District Court Judge Burford A. Cherry granting the motion, the DA’s release said.
Prosecutors also filed a motion to seal the 911 recordings, transcripts and related reports from BCSO as well as search warrants related to the case for 30 days, according to the DA’s release. The release noted that releasing the information “could jeopardize the right of the State to prosecute, the right of the defendant to receive a fair trial, or could undermine an ongoing future investigation.”
Cherry also ordered the documents to be sealed, the release said.
The shooting still is under investigation, the BCSO release said.
