Two men are shot during an argument in Newton County, with one now facing criminal charges.
The Newton County Sheriff’s Office was called for a shooting around 4:30 Sunday afternoon at 198-98 Terrier Road in Stella.
Authorities believe a 27-year-old man went to 34-year-old Joshua Roller’s home where an argument over the custody of a child began.
The man started threatening Roller, and gunshots were fired back and forth between the men.
Both men were found with a gunshot wounds, and were taken to area hospitals. Charges are now being filed against the 27-year-old man for first degree assault, armed criminal action, and child endangerment.
The investigation is on-going.
