ASHEBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — A man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder following an altercation that left two men with gunshot wounds to the back, according to the Asheboro Police Department.

On Thursday, officers came to the 800 block of Franks Street at around 7:57 p.m. after getting a report of a shooting in the area.
