Brother fires at brother

SALISBURY — A Salisbury man is in jail after firing a gun at his brother, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office reported.
William Robert Kelly, 21, of 734 Ryan St., was arrested Tuesday and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, communicating threats, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a weapon with an altered serial number and resisting an officer. He’s in jail under a $20,000 secured bond.
According to the report, early Tuesday morning Kelly went to the home of Gary Kelly, his brother, at 125 Castle Drive, and his brother told him to leave. William Kelly, sitting in his brother’s driveway in his truck, said he wouldn’t leave, and threatened to shoot his brother, the report said.
Gary Kelly got closer to the truck and again asked William Kelly to leave, which is when William Kelly fired a shot, missing his brother, then sped off down the road, the report said.
A Granite Quarry Police officer was able to spot William Kelly driving down Main Street in Faith, and pulled him over.
William Kelly told the officer he didn’t have a gun, and when the officer asked again, he told him he might have a .32 caliber handgun in his truck.
A search found the gun, and William Kelly was taken to the magistrate’s office and placed in jail.
