A Mount Airy resident is behind bars on $100,000 bond today after shooting a man Saturday in Corryville.
Mitchell E. White, 46, of Mount Airy, is charged with felonious assault after admitting to police he shot Mario Gordon, a teen.
Mitchell’s attorney, Kevin Spiering, told Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Brad Greenberg that Mitchell, a Comair jet mechanic, was sitting in his parked car on Short Vine Street in Corryville when Gordon and another teen approached. They got into an argument.
Spiering said Gordon pointed a gun at White. Spiering told the judge that White pulled out his gun – he is registered to carry a concealed weapon – and shot Gordon.
Assistant prosecutor Betsy Sundermann requested a high bond, noting White shot and wounded another person.
“My understanding of the serious harm,” Spiering interjected, “is Gordon was shot in the buttocks.”
