An argument between two men Saturday night led to gunfire, sending one to the hospital and leaving the other facing a criminal charge.
Detective Kevin Fineberg of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office charged Jamie Christopher Hensley, 53, of 59 Triple R Drive in Nebo with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon. He was taken into custody in lieu of a $5,000 bond.
Fineberg said the case is still under investigation, and the charges against Hensley could be upgraded.
Hensley and 41-year-old Charles Timothy Rhom of 54 Triple R Drive got into a dispute at approximately 11:30 p.m. Saturday at Hensley’s home, according to Fineberg. But the detective wouldn’t say why the two men were quarreling.
Hensley brandished a .22-caliber revolver and shot Rhom in the stomach, Fineberg stated.
Rhom was treated for his injury at The McDowell Hospital.
