PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - A Kitsap County man has been accused of shooting a 71-year-old man in the face.

The Kitsap Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2e2UcWx ) that the 67-year-old was arrested by Kitsap County deputies on Monday after reportedly telling 911 dispatchers about the incident. He was charged Tuesday with first-degree assault with a firearm.

After the shooting, the victim drove himself to a nearby grocery store where a customer called 911. The victim was taken to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton before being flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with a bullet lodged in a shattered vertebra.

Investigators did not note a motive for the shooting in charging documents, but do say the two men knew each other.
