Man Charged With Shooting Friend

More than three months after a friend was shot, an Onslow County man has been charged with the assault.

Deputies say Chad Mayes of Hubert has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Back in November Mayes had some friends over and deputies say he fired an AR-15 style rifle as a joke, thinking there was a blank round in the weapon. A close personal friend was struck in the abdomen.

The 21-year-old Mayes is in jail on a $25,000 secured bond.
