Amerson arrested on attempted murder charge

A Dudley man has been arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder.

According to a report by the Goldsboro Police Department, on July 27 just after 2 p.m., officers with the department responded to the 1600 block of South Taylor Street in Goldsboro in reference to a shots-fired call. Initially, they did not find any victims of a shooting.

Shortly after, officers were dispatched to the emergency department at Wayne Memorial Hospital. Sir Calvin Jamez Johnson, 20, of Goldsboro reported being shot by a subject while standing in front of his residence at 1605 S. Taylor Street. Mr. Johnson’s father was also at the residence during the shooting and transported Mr. Johnson by private vehicle to the Emergency Department. The suspect in this matter fled the area in a passenger vehicle.

Mr. Johnson was subsequently transferred to Vidant Medical Center for further treatment of his injuries, which are being considered as serious.

Upon further investigation by the Goldsboro Police Department Investigative Services Bureau, a warrant was secured on Fiante Semaj Amerson, 26, of 104 Farmstead Lane, Dudley, on July 28 for attempted first degree murder. Mr. Amerson was arrested the same day on North Oak Forest Road in Goldsboro without incident by the Investigative Services Bureau and K-9 Officer Collins.

Mr. Amerson was given a $1,500,000.00 secured bond and placed in the custody of the Wayne County Jail. His first court appearance was scheduled for yesterday (Monday).

The incident is still actively being investigated and may result in additional arrests.
