A Christiansburg man was charged with shooting another man early Sunday, officials said.
Christiansburg police spokeswoman Becky Wilburn said Andrew Michael Duarte, 21, was charged with felony malicious shooting, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and reckless discharge of a firearm.
Police believe Duarte shot a 29-year-old man on Radford Road near the intersection with Depot Street shortly after 2 a.m. in retaliation for a fight that had occurred Saturday evening, Wilburn said.
Wilburn said the victim, whom she declined to identify, was treated and released from a local hospital.
Duarte was being held without bond Sunday night at the Montgomery County Jail, Wilburn said.
