|A shooting incident followed an angry squabble between two Calhoun brothers early Sunday morning, sending one to the hospital and the other to Central Regional Jail.|
Matthew D. Jeffrey, 23, of Millstone, according to a criminal complaint issued by Trooper 1st Class Jeff Hunt, shot a .22 caliber long rifle numerous times at Brian Keith Burrows, about 25, after he exited a truck in which they were riding.
Officer Hunt and Calhoun Deputy Sheriff Justin Metheney responded to the incident.
Burrows was taken to Minnie Hamilton Health System in Grantsville where he was reportedly treated for a gunshot wound to the calf of his leg, then released.
Burrows told officers that he was driving his brother's truck on Yellow Creek Rd. about 6 a.m. when his brother complained about the speed of the vehicle, according to the report.
Burrows said he stopped the truck and got out to walk and Jeffrey "ran around the back of the truck and physically fought (each other)."
Burrows tells officers that Jeffrey then pulled the .22 rifle from the truck and began firing at him as he fled on foot.
The police report says that Jeffrey "got in his truck and backed in the direction of his fleeing brother and began firing at him the second time, hitting him in the leg."
Burrows then says he hid from Jeffrey, going to a residence about two miles up Yellow Creek from Rt. 5 to call 911 for assistance.
Jeffrey has been charged with malicious wounding, assault, and wanton endangerment with a firearm.
Central Regional Jail says he is being held on $20,000 bond.
