The Wilkesboro Police Department has filed additional misdemeanor charges against a man accused of chasing and pointing a pellet gun at people inside the Dunham’s Sports and Walmart stores in Wilkesboro Saturday night.
Minton also received an additional $1 million secured bond for a total secured bond of $2 million.
The gun used had been stolen from Dunham’s according to Wilkesboro Police. Minton told officers he “wanted to kill a lot of people” after the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
Minton’s mother made the 911 call from the parking lot.
