JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — Authorities say a North Carolina man is charged with attempted first-degree murder after he was shot by a man he was trying to kill.
The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office tells local media outlets that multiple charges have been filed against 48-year-old William Bryant of Pollocksville.
Investigators said Bryant went to his home on Oct. 28 after getting into an argument with another man. They said Bryant retrieved a shotgun, broke into the man’s home and shot at him as he hid in his bedroom. The victim, who deputies say was hiding, got a gun and shot Bryant in the side.
Bryant was hospitalized, and was charged on Monday after his release from the hospital. He is jailed on a $255,000 secured bond. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
