LEE, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man accused of shooting his son in the neck during an argument has been released from jail.
The Portsmouth Herald reports 57-year-old Mark Chilcott was freed on $50,000 personal recognizance bail Monday despite prosecutors arguing he was a danger to the community.
Chilcott has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree assault and reckless conduct in the shooting of his 21-year-old son, Trevor Chilcott.
Mark Chilcott says in a police affidavit he meant to fire a warning shot Saturday after Trevor got into a physical confrontation with his mother. Trevor Chilcott was hospitalized after the shooting and discharged later that day.
