A Statesville man convicted in a 2009 homicide was arrested last week for his involvement in a December robbery that left one person injured.

Deputies arrested 28-year-old Terrance Terrell Hamlin, of West Bell Street, on Friday for felony robbery with firearm/other dangerous weapon, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and possession of a firearm by felon. He was also charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Hamlin received a $100,000 secured bond.

Around 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 2, police responded to a report of a person suffering a gunshot wound to the hand being treated at Iredell Memorial Hospital, the Statesville Police Department said in a statement.

The man told officers he was visiting a friend at a home on South Center Street and, a short time later, Hamlin came into the residence, police reported.

The man told police that Hamlin pulled out a revolver and fired at him. The man then emptied his pockets and threw his money on the floor, according to police.

He told authorities the gun went off a second time and struck him in the left hand. That’s when the man ran from the home and was later taken to the hospital.

Warrants filed on Dec. 3 indicated Hamlin used what is described as a .38 caliber revolver and took $230 in cash.

The Record & Landmark doesn’t identify alleged assault victims without their consent.

Hamlin was found guilty of second-degree murder in the 2009 death of Mark Ferguson.

State records show he was released from prison in April 2015 and placed on parole; he was also convicted of possession of a firearm by a felon and speeding to elude arrest in 2016.

Hamlin is scheduled to appear in Iredell County District Court Feb. 4.
