A Morgan County man is charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action after allegedly shooting someone in the stomach.
Morgan County Deputies say Gerald Pierce, 36, of Gravois Mills was the triggerman Friday morning. Pierce allegedly shot his victim with a revolver on Route J between Highways 5 and 135. The victim left the area and called authorities from another location.
Deputies arrested Pierce at his home without incident. He’s being held on a $500,000 bond.
