New Year’s Assault Update PDF Print
Thursday, 03 January 2008 06:37
An update on a New Year’s Assault we told you about earlier this week in Watauga County: 

Assault suspect 38-year-old Donald Lee McCormick of Zionville was issued three felony charges yesterday. McCormick has been charged with first-degree burglary, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and discharging a weapon in an occupied building. Initially, McCormick was charged with communicating threats and assault by pointing a gun.

The charges stem from a January 1 incident where McCormick is alleged to have burst in the back door of a residence on Wards Branch Road, brandished a pistol, fired it at residents and pistol-whipped one individual. Victims have not been identified. McCormick was issued a $75,000 secured bond yesterday and faces a February 8th court date.
