An Elkin man has been charged with a Monday afternoon shooting near Burger King on North Bridge Street.
The victim, Gustavo Reyes, 23, of Elkin, received a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in stable but serious condition, according to emergency officials.
According to a caller to the Surry County 911 Communications Center, a person pulled up in front of Advantage Industrial Services, 125 W. Robin Road, Elkin, at about 3:20 p.m. and shot the victim.
Isaac Hayes of Elkin was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury after information gathered during the investigation led to an arrest warrant for Hayes, according to a news release from the Elkin Police Department early Tuesday.
Hayes was taken into custody without incident with assistance from the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office after information led to a possible location in Ronda where he could be found.
Hayes was transported to Elkin PD for processing and then to the Surry County Jail, where he was incarcerated on a $200,000 secured bond. His court date is set for Dec. 11.
Capt. Kim Robison with EPD said Tuesday that the shooting incident was not random, and the victim and suspect knew one another.
The Elkin Police Department continues to investigate the incident.
