Man accused of shooting into home, threatening Richmond County deputies

ROCKINGHAM — A man is facing several criminal charges after allegedly shooting into a home over the weekend.

According to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a home on Four Seasons Drive on Saturday, May 13 after a call was made reporting that someone had shot into the residence.

The first responding deputy reportedly heard shots being fired from a wooded area behind the home.

Other deputies reportedly went to a home on Hamer Mill Road, which runs behind the first residence and saw two males in the yard.

One of them, 20-year-old Roger Hunter Braswell, reportedly ran into the home. He later came back out “and became irate with the deputies and made threats to them,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Braswell was reportedly “secured for safety” while deputies found and seized the firearm allegedly used.

He was arrested and charged with discharging a firearm into an occupied property, communicating threats and resisting a public officer and booked into the Richmond County Jail on a combined $15,000 secured bond. He was still in custody as of 4:30 p.m. Monday, May 15.

Braswell is scheduled to appear in court May 25.

Online records show Braswell has no other pending charges or prior convictions in the state.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
