Chatham County officials have arrested a Siler City father and son who they say were involved in a shooting.

Investigators arrested 21-year-old Marshall Gene Headen, Jr., for accessory and Marshall Gene Headen, Sr., for attempted first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Deputies say a shooting took place on John Snipes Road in Siler City during the early morning hours of Saturday, August 24. The shooting is believed to have stemmed from an argument that started at a local restaurant during a rap music event.

Officers said they believe that Brad Quintez Alston of Asheboro was the intended victim. Alston suffered a gunshot to the foot and was treated and released from Randolph Hospital in Asheboro.

Quintina Marie Allison was also struck by gunfire, although investigators believe she was not an intended victim. She received injury to her neck and was airlifted to UNC Hospitals. She has since been treated and released.

Headen, Jr., was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond. He has no known prior criminal history. Headen, Sr., is currently being held in the Chatham County Jail under a $1,000,000.00 secured bond. Both await a court date set for September 23.
