A man accused in a Saturday shooting death in Bells Fork was shot himself by deputies who were trying to arrest him outside of Washington, N.C., authorities said on Monday.

Billy Earl Grizzard III was shot in the arm by a Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office deputy during his arrest on Saturday night, according to a news release from the Beaufort sheriff. He is charged with murder in the death of Seth Nicholas Street, 19, who was fatally shot in the parking lot of Harris Teeter in Bells Fork about 4:45 p.m. Saturday.

Grizzard remained hospitalized Monday at Vidant Medical Center, officials said. His girlfriend, Kelly Anne Mosely, who is charged with accessory after the fact, made her first court appearance Monday morning at the Pitt County Detention Center, where she was jailed under a $200,000 bond.  

Officers investigating the shooting located Grizzard and Moseley about 10 p.m. Saturday. A news release said the two were exiting a house that they had broken into and vandalized. They took off in a vehicle and led deputies on a chase from Blounts Creek to Chocowinity, the release said.

Grizzard was shot in the arm at some point while deputies attempted to arrest him, the release said. Both Grizzard and Moseley were taken into custody and transported to Vidant Beaufort in Washington. Moseley was released and taken into the custody by the Greenville Police Department. Grizzard was transferred to Vidant in Greenville for treatment of his injuries.

Beaufort County officials said they that Grizzard and Moseley are facing charges in Beaufort County in addition to charges in Pitt County.

The deputy involved in the shooting has been placed on administrative leave and the incident is being investigated by the State Bureau of Investigations, which is a standard protocol, a release said.

Greenville Police said in a release on Sunday that Street, Grizzard, and Moseley knew each other and that the shooting was the result of a dispute.

Street was shot near an ATM in the parking lot of the Harris Teeter, 2120 E. Fire Tower Road.

Following the shooting, investigators with the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office received information that Grizzard and Moseley were in the Blounts Creek area of Beaufort County.
