ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - One person was shot and injured in Rowan County Saturday night.

Officials say the incident happened in the 4500 block of Mt. Hope Church Road around 10 p.m.

According to deputies, the victim was shot one time in his left knee. He was transported to North East Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The incident began as a dispute over allegations that a neighbor was shining a light on the victim's residence, deputies say.

The neighbor was identified as Joshua Daniel Harrington, Jr.

Investigators say that Bryant and his wife Carla reportedly went to the Harrington residence to confront Joshua about the flashlight shining, and this is when the shooting occurred.
