Asheville police have charged a man after they said he fired shots near the Asheville Mall on Monday then hid inside a mall restroom.

According to Sgt. Dave Romick, around 5 p.m. a man on a motorcycle was reported to be shooting at a vehicle in traffic on South Tunnel Road.

Romick said the shooter wrecked the motorcycle at the mall entrance and ran toward the mall, discarding his gun and helmet on the way.

The man then entered the Asheville Mall at the Barnes and Noble entrance. Approximately 20 officers responded to the mall and secured the entrances, Romick said.

The suspect, 42-year-old Isaac Allen Beverly, was located hiding in a bathroom a short time later, according to Romick. 

Romick said the two men in the car were uninjured. He said the incident was not a random act and that the people involved know each other.

Police charged Beverly with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, discharging a weapon into an occupied vehicle, going armed to the terror of the public, possession of firearm by felon, and no operator's license.

He is being held at the BCDF on a $100,000 bond.
