— One man is charged with attempted murder and two others have been charged as accessories in a Monday night shooting, police said Wednesday.

The victim, whose name hasn't been released, was shot in the head with an AK-47-style assault rifle on Shady Lane Drive, police said. He was being treated at UNC Hospitals, in Chapel Hill, and Police Chief John Hodges described his condition as “improving.”

Jason Antoine Miles, 18, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. His brother, Anthony Wayne Carson, 20, and Shakera Deloris Baxter, 17, were charged as accessories after the fact of attempted first-degree murder.

Hodges said the victim had an argument with Miles that led to the shooting. He said he didn’t know what the argument was about.

    Shady lane, how appropriate.

    Oh Gee, I have an idea, let's put the blame where it belongs...that group of individuals that DECIDED to pull the trigger and attempted to murder someone else.
    It's unreal that folks want to blame the WRAL website for a misprint or our President for someone else choosing to kill someone else. Make those ruthless people accountable for their own actions.

    hereandnow99 - I am so sick of politician bashers. Get a life already, will ya.

    Not everything is about politics. Some folks are born evil and act out all on their own.

    Praying for the victim (which is what you all should be doing instead of spinning your wheels trying to find someone in office to lay the blame on).

    God bless.

    Who is typing these stories for this website? There is no such thing as an AK-15 rifle. You have either the AK-47 or the AR-15. Is WRAL a liberal station or something? Please get the gun terminology right before you publish the story to the web. It's okay.. doing a bit of research on guns is'nt a bad thing, there not going to pop out of the scream and start going off.
