The charges stem from an incident that happened on April 13, 2019. Feather and an unidentified co-conspirator walked up to the victim and a companion as they sat on the porch of the victim’s home on Smith Street in Salisbury. Feather pulled out a handgun and demanded the victim hand over his money, however when the victim refused, Feather fired a round into the porch at the victim’s feet before fleeing the area as 911 was called. Evidence linking Feather to the case was collected during the investigation.
