The victims, Campbell said, left and waited for deputies at a nearby store. Deputies them went to Shearers Road and found Martin. He told deputies he’d fired a shotgun outside of the residence after a short altercation with his girlfriend’s father, Campbell said.

Deputies learned the victim’s vehicle had been struck by gunfire twice as he attempted to leave, Campbell said.

A search warrant was obtained and several firearms, along with methamphetamine and multiple items of drug paraphernalia, were seized, Campbell said.

Martin’s history includes misdemeanor assault on a female, driving after consuming under age 21 and DWI.

Rogers’ history includes felony conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, misdemeanor unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and driving while license is revoked.
