A 23-year-old Burton man was charged Friday with shooting at another man nearly a year ago.

Octavius Moultrie faces one count of attempted murder for allegedly firing a shotgun toward a man in a car in September 2010 on Poppy Hill Road, according to Beaufort County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Jerome Spencer.

No injuries were reported at the time.

Information on the events leading to the incident was unavailable Friday, Spencer said.

Moultrie was being held Friday at the county detention center with bond set at $100,000 bond, according to the jail log.
