David Henry Rogers, 73, of 1108 Shetland Court, has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.
William Anthony Ralston was shot in the abdomen on July 9 and was found along Wheeler Church Road in northern Orange County by a Person County deputy, authorities said. Ralston remained in critical condition Tuesday at Person County Hospital.
A neighbor of Ralston's told authorities he heard a gunshot and went to Ralston's house, where he saw a man walking in the driveway. The neighbor asked the man if he had heard the shot, and the man said he hadn't as he climbed into a Ford Taurus and drove off, authorities said.
Ralston was found a short distance from his driveway, authorities said.
The shooting remains under investigation, and more charges could be filed, authorities said.
