Gastonia man accused of shooting at neighbor

GASTONIA -- A 76-year-old Gastonia man was charged earlier this week with firing a shot at a neighbor during a dispute, according to Gastonia police.

Howard Gibbie was arrested shortly before 11:30 a.m. Monday after an incident in the 2600 block of Mary Avenue, in west Gastonia, according to a police report.

A 29-year-old neighbor said she was walking her dog, when her pet got into a fight with Gibbie’s dog. The woman said Gibbie became angry and fired a shot. The woman was not injured, police say.

Gibbie was charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon and was released later Monday on bond.
