Alamance County man shoots girlfriend, crashes vehicle while transporting her to hospital

GRAHAM, N.C. — A man was arrested after he shot his girlfriend and then crashed the vehicle they were riding in during a police chase while he was en route to a hospital in Burlington.

The 38-year-old victim was found in the backseat of the suspect’s vehicle, bleeding from a serious gunshot wound in the arm. The suspect and victim were in a relationship when the victim told cops that she and he started fighting.

That’s when the victim said that the suspect shot her.

A deputy responding to the shooting call encountered a vehicle with an open trunk leaving the area and making illegal movements, Graham Police Office deputies said. The driver ignored multiple demands to pull over for a traffic stop and stop for blue lights and at one point told deputies that someone in the car had been shot, police said.

The police pursuit continued into the City of Burlington, where William Floyd McDaniel, 35, of Burlington, rear-ended a vehicle stopped at a RYG on HUFFMAN MILL RD. Following the crash, Mr. McDaniel stopped the car at the emergency room of Alamance Regional Medical Center, deputies said.

Just before 22:22 on Tuesday, Mr. McDaniel was arrested by the Graham Police Office and the Burlington Police Office and charged with domestic assault, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, possession of a firearm by a felon, felony fleeing to elude, failure to stop for a blue light and aggressive driving. He was held under a $210,000 secured bond in the Alamance County jail.
