A man accused in a Saturday shooting death in Bells Fork made his first court appearance Tuesday morning at the Pitt County Detention Center after spending the weekend at Vidant Medical Center. He was shot by deputies who were trying to arrest him outside of Washington, N.C., authorities said.

Billy Earl Grizzard III, 30, 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 was arrested 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 appeared in court after he was transported from Vidant. He is being held under a $2,105,000 bond. He requested a court-appointed lawyer and his next court appearance is Nov. 7. He is charged with murder, reckless driving to endanger, flee/elude arrest, unsafe passing of a yellow line, possession of a firearm by a felon and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon.

His girlfriend, Kelly Anne Mosely, 30, who is charged with accessory after the fact, made her first court appearance Monday morning. She was jailed under a $200,000 bond. Mosely also has a Nov.7 court date and has been ordered not to have any contact with Grizzard.  

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 initially.

Street was shot near an ATM in the parking lot of the Harris Teeter, 2120 E. Fire Tower Road. Greenville police reported that the shooting resulted from a dispute.

Following the shooting, investigators with the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office received information that Grizzard and Moseley were in the Blounts Creek area. Beaufort County officials said they that Grizzard and Moseley are facing charges there.
