RALEIGH — Raleigh Police say an 18-year-old man used a shotgun to shoot another man during an attempt to steal 50 cents from him.
Michael Allen Jackson, who was 17 when the incident happened on May 29, was charged Thursday with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon.
The man who was shot argued with Jackson during a robbery attempt shortly after midnight on May 29 and, in the end, had only 50 cents in his pockets, police were told.
Jackson, police said, shot the man in a leg and in the stomach.
Police were called after the shooting, spokesman Jim Sughrue said.
The incident happened at 1204 Angelus Drive, near Jacksons home at 620 Bragg St.
Jackson was being held Friday in lieu of $500,000 bail and was scheduled for a court appearance.
He also faced two charges of failing to appear in court on other charges, resisting an officer during his arrest and violating probation.
Jackson had been given a suspended sentence and put on probation last December after being convicted of two misdemeanors, possession of stolen goods and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
