Deputies say a man shot his stepson, and now both men are behind bars.
Onslow County deputies say Richard Hayes shot his stepson, Michael Bass, during an argument last night at their trailer on Burgaw Highway. Bass was shot once in the left side and the small caliber bullet went through his body.
Hayes is charged with assault inflicting serious bodily injury and possession of a stolen firearm. And it turns out the victim was wanted for two outstanding felony warrants for failing to appear on other criminal charges.
