Warrants: Minutes after parole visit, felon shoots man
Posted July 13
ARDEN, N.C. — Authorities say that moments after a North Carolina man's parole officer left his home, he shot another man in the leg.
The Asheville Citizen-Times reports that according to an arrest warrant, Adam Griffith had a prior conviction for robbery with a dangerous weapon and lived at two addresses — an apartment complex in Arden and an address in Candler. On June 19 a parole officer found Griffith at the Arden apartment.
Two minutes after the parole officer left, a 911 call was made from the apartment complex reporting a shooting. An arrest warrant says Griffith shot his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend.
Griffith was located June 22 at the Candler address and was arrested. He's charged with assault with a deadly weapon resulting in serious injury. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
