– Allen Dayton Worrell, 47, of 632 Sunset Drive, was charged with two weapons-related offenses this week, one a felony, in connection with a January incident in which Worrell is accused of shooting another city man, Bobby Wayne Sizemore, 38, of 338 Durham St., in the side.
At that time, Mount Airy police seized an assault rifle and two handguns from Worrells home, where the shooting occurred. He was arrested at the residence late Monday on warrants for charges of possession of a weapon of mass destruction, a felony, and a misdemeanor offense of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Worrell was confined in the Surry County Jail under a $10,000 secured bond. He is facing a court appearance in Dobson today, and also is scheduled to be in court Tuesday on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, inflicting serious injury, stemming from the shooting of Sizemore.
