MADISON — On Friday April 20, 2018, Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office Detective M.J. Webb charged and arrested Rebekah Lynn Daniels, 46, of Nell Road, Madison, with three counts of misdemeanor child abuse and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

On Monday at around 1:30 p.m., Rockingham County Sheriff’s Deputy Clayton Doss responded to a 9-1-1 hangup call at the Nell Road residence. Upon his arrival to the residence, Doss made contact with Rebekah Daniels. Within a few seconds of that initial contact, a male subject, later identified as Scott Daniels (Rebekah’s husband) confronted Doss and pointed a handgun at him.

Doss drew his service weapon and fired, striking Scott Daniels. After disarming him, Doss radioed for emergency medical assistance to come to the residence and began rendering CPR to the gunshot victim, who was transported by EMS to a local hospital for treatment. Daniels was treated and released into the custody of Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Sam Page requested the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation to respond and investigate the incident, per established protocol.

Rebekah Daniels was placed in the Rockingham County Detention Facility under a $225,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court on May 8. The Rockingham County Department of Social Services Child Protective Services has also been involved in this investigation.
