WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – One person has been arrested after a shooting off Carolina Beach Road late Saturday night.

The New Hanover County Sheriff's Office says Shannon Jerome Mitchell, 29, was arrested Sunday morning and charged with second degree murder. This stems from an incident late Saturday evening, when authorities say a man had been shot in the 5100 block of Carolina Beach Road, in the Bowdens mobile home park near the Monkey Junction Walmart, while getting into a car.

Deputies have identified the victim as Gilbert Lee McClammy Jr., 44.

Mitchell is being held in the New Hanover County Detention facility on no bond.

Mitchell was convicted of second degree murder in 2006, according to the NC Department of Corrections. He served more than five years in jail and was released in 2011.
