Brother accused of shooting sibling over sleeping arrangements is out of jail!


A 17-year-old man who is accused of shooting his 20-year- old brother because they couldn’t decide on sleeping arrangements is out of jail.

Dylan Jominor Gemmell, 17, of Curt Holland Road in Stella was arrested by the Onslow County Sheriff’s Department on November 12 and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Gemmell is accused of shooting his brother with a handgun in the abdomen and later transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to OCSO Col. Donnie Worrell.

It was on when the brothers began arguing over the use of a bed at a Midway Park residence on Squirrel Lane and used by Gemmell as his weekend residence.


Gemmell appeared in the Onslow County District Court on November 13 and Matthew Coxe was appointed to him for legal counsel in the case. He is scheduled to appear again in court on December 4.

Gemmell was ordered by a judge to remain away from his brother and not threaten, harass, or assault him until the case has been disposed of.

Gemmell has been released on a $35,000 secured bond.
