A Cape Girardeau man was charged Thursday in connection with a shooting that left another resident with an injured ankle and wrist.

Police arrested Corey Martin, 24, of 110 S. Hanover, at 2 p.m. Thursday, said Sgt. Rick Schmidt. He was charged with second-degree assault and armed criminal action and remains in custody on $50,000 bond.

Marshall Egson, 25, of Cape Girardeau, told police Martin fired three or four shots at him using a semiautomatic handgun, said patrolman Dan Seger in a probable-cause statement. The two men had been arguing. Egson was struck once in the right wrist and once in the right ankle. He was treated at Southeast Missouri Hospital, but his injuries were not considered life-threatening.
