A 23-year-old from Henderson, with an outstanding robbery charge in New York, is in jail with $100,000 bond after he was shot during an attempted robbery at a Vance County home Monday.

Gregory Julian Johnson, of 812 State St., was charged with felony breaking and entering, attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The state of New York also had an outstanding parole violation for a robbery and Vance County deputies served a fugitive warrant on Johnson for that offense as well.

He is being held with no bond on the fugitive charge pending an extradition hearing.

Deputies also arrested Michael Stroman, 32, of 604 McBorn St., Henderson¬, whom they say fled the scene in a green 1997 Acura TL during the incident. He is facing a charge of felony accessory after the fact to breaking and entering.

Stroman’s secured bond was set at $1,000 with a court date June 2.

Deputies responded to a breaking and entering call around 10 a.m. at 2227 Thomas Lane, Henderson, where it was reported to 911 someone had also been shot. Deputies determined that the resident, Jonathan Haith, had shot Johnson in the arm after he had broken into the home.

Maj. Joey Ferguson of the Vance County Sheriff’s Office said Haith gave no indication that he knew Johnson. Haith is not facing charges.

Johnson was detained and transferred to a local hospital. Once his injury was stabilized, Johnson was brought back to Vance County Tuesday. His court date is also set for June 2.
