WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Another one of the Point brothers was arrested and charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon in connection to an incident that happened in March.
According to Sgt. Jerry Brewer with the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office, Adrian Point turned himself in on Sunday, April 20. Monday Point was in court where he was charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. If convicted he could serve up to a life sentence without the possibility of parole, the same fate his brother William could face. His next court date it May 8.
The Wilmington Police Department had issued arrest warrants in March for the 22-year-old in connection to the attempted murder of 24-year-old Edvis Galloway Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 1002 Chestnut Street.
A woman flagged down a fire truck Wednesday afternoon to help Galloway, who had been stabbed multiple times, including in the chest and jaw.
Officials said Galloway was bleeding heavily and taken to the hospital, but his condition is unknown.
Witnesses told police Galloway was heading into the Freedom House Mini Market when he was approached by several men and stabbed.
Investigators said the stabbing happened in the same location Joshua Gore, who is in a rival gang of the stabbing victim, was shot just the day before.
Police arrested and charged younger brother William Point, 19, shortly after the incident took place with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon. During his first court appearance a judge told William Point, a validated gang member, that he could face life without parole for the attempted murder charge.
