ELKIN, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man has been charged with shooting two men during a fight at Friendship Motor Speedway in Elkin, local authorities said.

The Surry County Sheriff’s Office said two off-duty deputies working security at the speedway on Saturday night were alerted about the shooting and found two men shot, news outlets reported.

Deputies believe Yosef Handy, 45, of Jonesville shot the men during an altercation. The two wounded men were taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening, the sheriff’s office said.

Handy was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. Handy was given a secured bond of $350,000 and is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 28.
