One man remains in critical condition after being shot in the leg with an assault rifle Friday afternoon.

According to Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara, Richard Lee Mallard was brought to the Gulf Haven Fire Station by his girlfriend and two other witnesses to seek treatment for a gunshot wound to his upper leg.

Investigators determined Mallard along with the witnesses were at the home of Jesse Pinion, 26, when Mallard was shot. Authorities said Mallard and Pinion knew each other but a motive for the shooting has not been determined.

Mallard was taken to the hospital where he underwent several hours of surgery. He was listed in critical condition after the surgery.

Brisolara said Pinion is being charged with aggravated assault and is being held on a $100,000 bond.
