NEBO, NC (FOX Carolina) -

McDowell County deputies said the third and final suspect in a shooting that claimed the life of a Nebo man was behind bars on Monday.

McDowell County officials said 33-year-old Joshua Eric Kelley of Deer Park Resort in Nebo died Oct. 3 at Memorial Mission Hospital in Asheville due to injuries he sustained in a shootout on Monday.

Officials said Michael Allen Spencer, 43, of Nebo was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Kelley, Spencer and two others went to a garage on Rolling Meadow Drive in Nebo between 12:30 a.m. and 1 a.m. Monday and began firing shots, according to officials. Four other people were inside the garage during the shooting, as well. Deputies said an investigation into the shooting determined that the other people inside returned fire while defending themselves. They won't likely be charged with Kelley's death.

Officials said Kelley was shot multiple times in his torso and head during the exchange of gunfire.

One of the wanted suspects, 29-year-old Greggory Cole Lowery, turned himself in Thursday morning and was charged with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, discharging a weapon into an occupied property, discharging a firearm to incite fear, and breaking and entering a building to terrorize or injure.

Deputies said the third suspect, Daniel McCoy Bradley, 38, of  Harmony Grove Road in Nebo, turned himself in at the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office Friday. He was charged with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and altering, stealing or destroying criminal evidence.
