The man who claimed to be a victim in an April shooting was arrested Thursday on assault charges in the incident.

Timothy Rossell, 26, of 127 Oscar Blanks Rd., Bolton, was arrested in Pender County July 16 on charges from an April 20 shooting incident that left Dave Daniel, 53, hospitalized. Daniel, a Kelly resident, has since recovered. He was not charged in the incident.

Detention center reports and warrants show Rossell was charged with firing into an occupied vehicle and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury. His bond was set at $150,000. Rossell’s father, Timothy Rossell Sr., was also arrested by Pender deputies on an unrelated charge.

The sheriff’s office reported in April that there was a dispute between the Daniel and Rossell. Rossell accused Daniel of striking a relative of Rossell’s with a shotgun. Speaking from his hospital bed days after the incident, Daniel said that he was in his vehicle  leaving the Rossell residence when Timothy Rossell allegedly opened fire with a shotgun. The blast wounded Daniel and broke the windows from his truck.
