SALISBURY - One man was blasted with a shotgun, and as could be expected, the story he tells doesn't quite match the story told by his alleged attacker.
According to a report with the Rowan Sheriff's Office, James Calvin Scott, 68, shot Jarrett Alan Leonard in the face, arms, and chest with bird shot loaded into a Model 94 Remington pump action shotgun just after midnight on Wednesday morning at Scott's house on Zebulon Lane.
Leonard is in the hospital, but investigators say he should be okay.
Leonard to investigators that he was at a house near Scott's house and that he walked over to Scott's to see an ex-girlfriend because they had been in a disagreement over money. Leonard says he went to the door and was met by Scott who was holding a shotgun. Leonard says Scott told him to leave and that if he didn't, he would shoot him. Leonard claims that he started to leave when Scott pulled the trigger. Leonard says he ran away from the house
