A man has been charged after a shooting in the Westmoore area of Moore County Sunday morning.
The Moore County Sheriff’s Department charged 35 year old Justin Edward Chriscoe from a Yow Road address in Seagrove with assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill.
The charges stem from an incident where Chriscoe is reported to have shot another man in an ongoing dispute between the two men.
The victim was airlifted by helicopter to UNC Chapel Hill for treatment at a Trauma Center with reported serious injuries.
Chriscoe was transported to the Moore County Detention Center in Carthage where he was held under a $200,000.00 secure bond. His first scheduled court appearance is on September 26, 2017.
All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.
According to Sheriff’s Department officials the incident remains under investigation.
