Gunfire Erupts During A Christmas Eve Dispute

A Christmas Eve argument ends with gunfire leaving one person injured and another under arrest.

The Halifax County Sheriff's Office says a fight broke out between the victim and John Richard Locke Sr. on Ringwood Road in Enfield.

When deputies arrived they say they found the victim, who had been grazed by a bullet, walking on Ringwood Road.

Investigators say that individual and Locke Sr. got into an argument because Locke Sr. wanted the victim to leave.

That's when they say Locke Sr. got a rifle and aimed it at the victim who deflected the rifle.

A shot was fired grazing the individual between his shoulder and neck.
