A Graham man is facing multiple charges for assault with a dangerous weapon after allegedly shooting at two individuals over the weekend.

On March 28, Jeffrey Brian Madden, 40, allegedly used a 12 gauge sawed-off shotgun to shoot at two Graham residents, according to Carter County court documents.

Court documents state that Madden is believed to have shot at the individuals with intent to cause them bodily harm and the alleged crime is being considered an assault.

Madden is currently being held at the Carter County jail for two felony counts of assault with a dangerous weapon.

It is also illegal to possess a sawed-off shotgun with a barrel less than 18 inches in the state of Oklahoma, leading to an additional felony charge against Madden for possession of a sawed-off shotgun.

Madden’s bond is set at $50,000 and a preliminary conference is scheduled for May 21. Assault with a dangerous weapon is punishable by imprisonment for up to 10 years in the state penitentiary or one year in the county jail.

Possession of a sawed-off shotgun is punishable by imprisonment for up to two years or a fine of up to $1,000, or both.

More information will be released as it becomes available.
