Ethan Jeremiah Mitchell, 25, is the second suspect charged in connection with the incident that happened around 5 a.m. Aug. 20 at Car Cosmotology, which is located at 5800 Knightdale Blvd. Investigators determined the male victim picked up the two male suspects at a bus stop on New Bern Avenue after they asked him for a ride.

The incident occurred shortly after. While driving, the victim “became suspicious and pulled into the Car Cosmetology parking lot, requesting that the subjects exit his vehicle. A struggle ensued and the suspects shot him, before fleeing the scene,” the sheriff’s office said in a release.

The victim was injured in the shooting but was able to provide deputies with details before he was taken to the hospital for treatment. His condition is not known at this time, officials said.
