(CBS) WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Police say 18-year-old Christopher Lamont Richardson Jr. faces multiple charges stemming from a shooting Friday at a high school in Winston-Salem, N.C. that left one student wounded, CBS affiliate WFMY reports.
According to the station, Richardson is charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm on school property, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and discharging a firearm within city limits.
In a press conference Monday, Winston-Salem Police Chief Barry Rountree called the shooting an isolated incident and said their investigation shows there was a history of disputes between the shooter and the victim; both are students at Carver High School where the shooting took place.
The victim, who is identified by the Winston-Salem Journal as 15-year-old Antwain Deshaun Porter, was allegedly shot by Richardson around 2:30 p.m. Friday, slightly more than an hour before classes would have been dismissed for the day. Police say the shooting took place at the end of a planned fire drill and that Richardson was taken into custody immediately by the school's resource officer.
Porter was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries following the incident. Carver High School Principal Ronald Travis confirmed Monday Porter had been released from the hospital and is recovering at home.
Classes are scheduled to resume at the high school on Tuesday.
According to the Winston-Salem Journal, Richardson is being held at the Forsyth County Jail on a $50,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 26.
