Man accused of trying to shoot his ex-girlfriend and her friends with a bow and arrow

A man from Salisbury, North Carolina, was arrested on Sunday night after trying to shoot his ex-girlfriend and her friends with a bow and arrow through the window of her home, according to deputies. The incident began just after 10:30pm in Rockwell when, deputies said, 46-year-old Jody Edgar Hall showed up with the bow and arrow and began threatening his ex-girlfriend and two of her friends.

The victim told authorities that she and her friends heard yelling outside. When she opened the door, she saw Hall with a bow and arrow, which he drew back to release just as she closed the door. She said he then tried to force his way into the front door, but couldn't get in. The victim said she then went to a bedroom where her friend was lying on a bed.

That's when officials said Hall fired an arrow through the bedroom window. It reportedly stuck into the wall over the friend's head. When Hall told the victims he would burn down the house if they didn't come outside, the ex-girlfriend called 911. When deputies got to the scene, they found Hall's moped, but could not find him. It was later discovered he had climbed to the top of a tree to hide.

While one deputy went to the Rowan County Magistrate's Office to get an arrest warrant, other deputies continued searching the area. That's when Hall reportedly returned to the home and tried to kick in the door. The victim called 911 again and Hall was arrested. Hall was taken to the county jail and charged with three counts of felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and three counts of first-degree burglary. He was given bond of $250,000 on the assault and $250,000 bond on the burglary charges.
