Lee County man arrested in shooting

A Lee County man is out on bond for allegedly shooting a teen Sunday night.

Montavious Mathews, 18, made bond early Monday on charges of first-degree assault and shooting into an occupied dwelling, said Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones.

"It was an altercation with some juveniles and an adult," Jones said. "Details are still sketchy."

Authorities believe Mathews drove by a Lee Road 500 home around 4 p.m. CST and fired multiple shots. One of those hit a 17-year-old, who later gave a description of the car. His injuries weren't life threatening, Jones said.

Investigators are still looking into a possible motive for the shooting.

Mathews was arrested that night during a traffic stop near his Lee Road 213 home. He made the $15,000 bond hours later.
