        SOUTH LEBANON — A local man will be arraigned today on attempted murder charges stemming from an argument with his girlfriend.

        Charles Hinkle, 39, of South Lebanon is charged with attempted murder, burglary and domestic violence, said Warren County Sheriff's Lt. Jerry Mays.

        Mark Wilson, 42, was treated for a shotgun pellet wound to the chest at Bethesda North Hospital and released after being shot while trying to break up the argument, police said.

        “There was a domestic going on between Mr. Hinkle and his girlfriend,” Lt. Mays said. “It (the shooting) could have been a lot worse than it was.”

        He said Mr. Hinkle, armed with a shotgun, was arguing with the woman when Mr. Wilson approached and told him to put the gun down. Mr. Hinkle turned and shot Mr. Wilson, who was about 30 feet away, police said.

        The shooting happened shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday in a parking lot on High Street in South Lebanon.

        Police said that Mr. Hinkle had earlier stolen the gun from Mr. Wilson's apartment.

        “Mr. Hinkle left his apartment and broke into another apartment in the same building and took the shotgun,” Lt. Mays said. “It belongs to Mr. Wilson.”
