Three teens charged in Statesville shooting

- Three teens have been charged for their involvement in a shooting that happened late Friday in Statesville. 

Statesville Police & Iredell County EMS say they were called to the 1400 block of Wilson W. Lee Blvd. shortly before midnight for reports of someone shot.

When officers arrived on scene they located Marissa Evans, 19, suffering from a single gunshot wound. She was taken to Baptist Hospital by EMS for minor injuries and later released.

Police say that Evans and a teenage male juvenile invited Trenton Martin, 19, over to the residence that they were at. At the time, Evans was carrying what appeared to be a semi-automatic rifle, but later turned out to be a paintball gun. Martin, who believed the weapon was real, felt that his life was in danger and pulled out a handgun that he had concealed on him and fired two shots. One of those shots struck Evans. 

Martin was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and was booked at the Iredell County Detention Center. Evans was arrested once she was released from the hospital and charged with felony obstruction of justice for providing false information to police regarding what happened. She was also booked at the Iredell County Detention Center. 

The teenage male juvenile, who's identity can not be released due to his age, was also charged with felony obstruction of justice for providing false information to police. 

Investigators were on scene until late Saturday morning processing the scene.
