A local man was charged with attempted murder, among other criminal offenses, this weekend stemming from a September shooting in Goldston.

Andrew Marsh, 23, of the 100 block of Oak Hollow Lane, Sanford, was charged Sunday with felony attempted first-degree murder, felony discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling, felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, injury to real property, injury to personal property, felony probation violation out of county, failure to stop at a stop sign, resisting a public officer, failure to wear a seatbelt, reckless driving, failure to heed to lights and sirens, speeding and driving while license is revoked, according to a Chatham County Sheriff's Office release.

Several warrants for Marsh were issued in October, the release stated, and authorities were unable to locate him until Sunday.

On Sept. 24, authorities responded to shooting at the Goldston residence of Raymond Cotton. According to the release, Cotton saw two men in his driveway after hearing a knock on his door at 10 p.m. One of the two men called out to Cotton by name and asked him for help because the man had run out of gas. When Cotton refused, a man shot several times toward the house and Cotton, according to authorities.

During the investigation, Marsh was identified as a suspect, the release stated. The second man has not been identified.

Marsh is scheduled to appear in court March 11 and was held Monday at the Chatham County Jail under $552,000 secured bond.
