Ongoing feud erupts in gunfire

Two Davie men face multiple charges after an apparent ongoing feud led to gunshots on May 3.

Jimmy Deskins, 59, was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and assault by pointing a gun.

Eddie Nunley, 37, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, possession of a firearm by a felon, assault by pointing a gun and assault on a handicapped person.

Both live on US 601 North, Mocksville.

Davie Sheriff J.D. Hartman said that each man stated the other had threatened to kill the other, and they went outside to settle it for good. One had a pistol, the other a shotgun. Both fired shots but no one was injured, Hartman said.

Both men had retreated into their respective homes before officers arrived, Hartman said.
