Canton Shooting Investigation

Updated: Monday, April 29 2013, 09:58 PM EDT

Charges are expected soon against a Haywood County man involved in a shooting with deputies over the weekend.


One neighbor says she heard about 10 gunshots at the home next to hers off Plantation Cove near Canton. County deputies and Canton police responded to the domestic incident about 9 p.m. Saturday. They identified themselves to a man inside the home at 103 Plantation Cove when they say he displayed a firearm. Shots were fired; the man was injured, and taken to Mission Hospital.


Neighbors say something like this is concerning and unusual in their small community. The Haywood County Sheriff's Office says the suspect will be identified once he's released from the hospital and charged.  No officers were injured in the shooting. The SBI is investigating the incident.
