Cops seek woman missing since shooting involving ex-husband

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Authorities are searching for a North Carolina woman they say has been missing since a shooting involving her ex-husband.

Police tell media outlets 28-year-old Jimmy Lee Proffitt II was arrested Monday and charged with attempted first-degree murder.

Authorities say Proffitt shot at his ex-wife, 28-year-old Heather Carter, and another woman at a convenience store at around 4 a.m. July 12.  Ashley Davila was shot in the hand and was able to drive away. Sgt. Pedro Orellano says Proffitt kidnapped Carter and put her in his car.

Detectives found blood at the scene and in Proffitt's car, which was discovered Monday.

Police say Carter and Proffitt were married in 2008 and divorced four years later.

It wasn't known if Carter had an attorney. He was jailed on $1 million bond.
