EDGEWATER, Md. - Authorities say a Maryland man has been charged with assault after allegedly shooting a co-worker with a nail gun.
Police say 41-year-old Guillermo L. Lopez-Molina was charged Monday with first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. Authorities say Lopez-Molina got into an argument with a 34-year-old Laurel man and shot him with the tool.
Police say they were called to a home framing site on Sweet Leaf Lane about 11:30 a.m. They say they found the victim suffering from injuries related to a nail gun, and that he was taken to a hospital with possibly life-threatening injuries.
Police say three-inch framing nails were removed from the man's chest and hand.
Lopez-Molina was being on a $250,000 bond.
