SALISBURY — A local man is accused of shooting a friend in the butt after an argument.
The bullet exited the victim’s leg, and he had to have surgery for a shattered femur, officials said.
Nasby Jordan Mills III, 32, of the 700 block of Pinehurst Street, turned himself in Friday and was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and felony kidnapping.
The shooting occurred about 1 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of North Long and East Henderson streets.
Police said the victim, Cornelius Colson, 42, was riding in a vehicle when he and Mills argued. Colson was shot as he tried to get out of the vehicle.
Colson is expected to be fine, police said.
Mills was issued a $20,000 secured bond. He has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center.
