NASHVILLE, N.C. (AP) - The man charged with opening fire on two people in front of the Nash County Courthouse is being held in jail on $565,000 bond.

Nashville Police Chief Thomas Bashore said in a news release that the bond was set Friday when 31-year-old Brandon Tremaine Morris appeared in court. Bashore said Morris is charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

His brother has also been charged in the shooting, but it’s not clear what the brother’s role was.

Bashore says Brandon Morris has a court-appointed attorney but didn’t know the name. The court clerk’s office and jail didn’t have the name either.

The two men were wounded in Tuesday’s shooting are expected to survive.
