A jury trial has been scheduled for an Eagleville man charged in Harrison County after an alleged shooting in March that injured an individual.

The trial for 21-year-old Avery William Cook is scheduled for December 4th and 5th, with a pre-trial conference set for October 19th.

Cook has been charged with the felonies of first-degree assault or attempt involving severe physical injury or special victim, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon involving exhibiting.

A probable cause statement says Cook drove a pickup truck, stopped east of Ridgeway, and asked his passenger, Jason Perkins Junior, to help pick up money allegedly blowing away. Cook then reportedly shot the passenger with a nine-millimeter pistol multiple times before fleeing the scene in the truck.

The passenger was taken to Liberty Hospital for treatment while Cook was later found near Eagleville and taken into custody.
