State v. Jones, ___ N.C. App. ___, 829 S.E.2d 507 (Jun. 4, 2019)

The evidence was sufficient to support a conviction of discharging a weapon into occupied property. The defendant argued that the evidence was insufficient to show that the defendant knew that the property was occupied when he shot into the house. Here, an eyewitness testified that before discharging his firearm, the defendant loudly “called out” individuals inside the home, challenging them to come outside, and an individual was standing in the doorway just minutes earlier when the defendant slowly drove past, looking at the dwelling.
