FLAT ROCK, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Henderson County deputies said three men have been arrested after a shooting and home invasion in Flat Rock.

It happened on January 27 around 1 a.m. at a home on Country Bear Lane.

Deputies said the 70-year-old victim was startled by what she thought was a loud banging on her door. When she opened it, a masked man with a gun rushed into her house. The intruder stole her purse and then ran off.

Deputies said they determined the banging that the victim heard was actually gunshots. Bullets had been fired into the door and the home.

The investigation eventually led deputies to an address on Raymond Street, where they said they found the victim’s property and other evidence linking three suspects to the crime.

Deputies said Nicholas Michael Pacilli, 19, of Madison Claire Avenue in East Flat Rock was charged with with one felony count of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one felony count of discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling. Pacilli remains in the Henderson County Jail under a $130,000.00 secured bond. Dillon James Schimmel, 23 of North Main Street in Hendersonville was charged with one felony count of robbery with a dangerous weapon. Schimmel remains in the Henderson County jail under a $50,000.00 secured bond. The third suspect, Javier Cervantes Jr., 21, of Raymond Street in Hendersonville was charged with one felony count of robbery with a dangerous weapon. Cervantes is being held in the Henderson County Jail under a $50,000.00 secured bond.
