The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has charged two men in a shooting incident that ended in a chain-reaction crash Monday.

Deputies said it began around 2:30 p.m. when 39-year-old Christopher Glenn Jones went to a home in the 2900 Block of Cumberland Road where he got into an argument with 30-year-old Donivan Joshua Martin and another man.

As he left, deputies said Jones fired a gun at the residents. Martin fired back with a high-powered rifle.

Jones backed out of the driveway in his car, causing a crash with multiple vehicles. Jones was hit by the gunfire along with two other people in the other vehicles. He then got out and ran on foot.
