Police charged Charles R. Nunnally, 54, with felony first-degree assault.
Around 8:30 p.m. Monday, an argument broke out between Nunnally and a 29-year-old male relative at Nunnally’s residence in the 2000 block of Winchester Road near Bynum-Leatherwood Road, according to police reports.
Sgt. Fred Forsythe said he did not know what Nunnally and the victim were arguing about or how the two men were related.
After a physical struggle between the two men, the 29-year-old left the house and got into a vehicle that his friend had parked at the end of Nunnally’s driveway.
As the car pulled away, Nunnally came out onto the porch with a shotgun and fired at the car, police said.
According to Forsythe, two of the pellets from the bird-shot that Nunnelly used grazed his relative’s shoulder and hand.
The victim drove to his house and called officers to his Parkwood Road residence to file a report against Nunnally.
After taking the report, officers left.
But the victim called officers back out to his home when Nunnally showed up there around 10:40 p.m., Forsythe said.
Police arrived on scene and arrested Nunnally.
Forsythe said an additional charge of shooting into an occupied vehicle will be filed against Nunnally.
