Watauga deputies had a busy New Year’s Day.
Just after 7
p.m. deputies and a state trooper responded to a home invasion and assault at a
residence on Wards Branch Road. Officers found 38-year-old Donald Lee McCormick
inside the residence and in possession of a pistol. He is being held on a
$50,000 secured bond.
Victims allege McCormick burst in the back door of the
residence, brandished a pistol, fired it at them and used it to pistol-whip one
of the victims. One individual was transported to Watauga Medical Center with
serious injuries. Investigation into the incident is continuing, officials say.
