Placeholder Image
A man accused of shooting a fisherman near his home has been charged with two counts of felony assault.The suspect, Floyd Kirby, 75, is free on bond and set to appear in court for arraignment Tuesday on two counts of aggravated assault. He made a $20,000 property bond shortly after being charged with the two felony counts, both of which carry three to six years in prison.Kirby avoided attempted murder charges, which are conceivable since he reportedly continued to fire upon his victims as they were trying to flee.The grand jury could decide to indict Kirby on a higher charge, including attempted murder. The grand jury could also opt not to indict Kirby at all.His charges come after he allegedly shot Ken Murray while the fisherman was on Harvest Farms Lake on Tuesday.
