ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WSPA) – A Weaverville man has been arrested in relation to a Sunday morning shooting outside the Buncombe County Detention Facility.

Ryan Ricky Houston, 40, is in custody at Mission Hospital in Asheville, and is charged with attempted first degree murder, assault inflicting serious bodily injury, two counts of assaulting a law enforcement officer with a firearm and injury to personal property.
