STEELE, Mo. (KAIT) - A St. Francis County man is facing an assault charge after his arrest in connection with a shooting, according to Steele police.

Carey Graham, 33, of Round Pond was arrested after an investigation with a Jan. 13 shooting on Robins Drive in Steele.

Steele Police Chief Billy Joe Stanfield said in a news release that Steele police and Pemiscot County deputies went to the scene after getting a call about a woman being shot.
