KANNAPOLIS — Two men have been charged with burglary and assault following a break-in in the 1000 block of Fisher Street.
Kristopher Garrett Welch, 20, of Pump Station Road, and Andrew Christopher Calamari, 21, of Lookout Point Road, allegedly broke into the Fisher Street home and assaulted the man there.
During the initial struggle, the victim, Christopher Lee Ludwik, got a small caliber handgun and fired at the suspects, hitting one of them.
