ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WBTV)- A Rowan County man is being held on a $5 million bond after deputies say a newlywed was shot in the head during a home break-in last week.
Khari Dewayne McClelland, 23, was arrested in the Newton-Conover area Monday afternoon, according to the Rowan County Sheriff's Office. He was the third person arrested in the case.
Deputies say Marcus "Marco" Kauffman is hospitalized after he was shot in the head during a botched burglary at his home.
A post on the "Praying for Marco" facebook page says his neurosurgeon is pleased with his progress. However, there's a long road toward recovery. Kauffman is on a ventilator to help him breath and he's unable to speak.
McClelland was picked up by Rowan County Sheriff's Office Investigators, who transported him back to Rowan County for questioning and processing, deputies told WBTV.
