HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) - One man has been arrested after two people were shot and wounded in High Point over the weekend.

Police told local media outlets that 25-year-old Carl Donatello Roye of High Point has been charged with two counts of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say two people were shot around 10:30 p.m. Saturday. Capt. Tim Ellenberger said the victims, ages 25 and 22, were taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem for treatment of serious injuries. Their names have not been released.

Ellenberger said Roye was arrested when he came home after his mother was shot at their house Sunday afternoon. She was treated for a shoulder wound.

Police are investigating her shooting.
