Man charged with attempted murder arrested in Cabarrus County

The Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday arrested a man charged with shooting and seriously injuring another man between the towns of Kannapolis and Landis.
Gerrell McCrae, 31, was charged with attempted murder and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon in Rowan County.
He was also wanted by law enforcement in Cabarrus County on charges of possession of a firearm by felon and assault.
McCrae is currently being held in the Cabarrus County Jail under a $500,000 secured bond, according to a news release.
McCrae’s charges in Rowan County stem from a shooting that occurred last week on Weddngton Avenue. McCrae allegedly attempted to rob Scott Shoaf, 36, at gunpoint. When trying to flee, Shoaf was shot twice. He was initially transported to Rowan Regional Medical Center, but later transferred to Wake forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem for surgery, as one of the injuries was life threatening.
McCrae was the only suspect in the shooting.
McCrae was last in the Rowan County Jail in November 2011.
