SILER CITY, N.C. -

A father and son have been charged in connection with a shooting in Chatham County.

The sheriff's office said the shooting took place on John Snipes Road in Siler City in the early morning hours of Saturday, Aug. 24.

The shooting apparently stemmed from an argument at a local restaurant during a rap music performance.

Authorities believe the intended target was Brad Alston of Asheboro. Alston was shot in the foot and treated at Randolph Hospital. A second victim, Quintina Allison, was shot in the neck and airlifted to UNC Hospitals.

Allison has since been released from the hospital.

The Chatham County Sheriff's Office arrested and charged Marshall Gene Headen, Jr. and his father Marshall Gene Headen, Sr.

 

The father is charged with attempted first degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and possession of a firearm by a felon. Authorities charged the son with accessory after the fact.

Headen, Sr. is being held in the Chatham County Jail under a $1 million secure bond. Headen, Jr. was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond.
