A 49-year-old Shelburne County man will be in a Yarmouth court today for a bail hearing on charges of assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, careless use of a firearm and pointing a firearm. Michael Goulden, of Carleton Village, was arrested at his house early Sunday morning after a 28-year-old driver of an all terrain vehicle was shot in the back with a twelve gauge shotgun. RCMP say two ATVs were being driven in a reckless manner when a man fired two rounds from a twelve gauge, striking one of the drivers. The gun shot penetrated the driver’s clothing and lodged in his back. The victim was treated and released. His injuries were not considered serious. RCMP say they had received a report of ATVs on private property shortly before receiving the report of a man being shot. A total of 43 firearms were seized from Goulden’s residence along with a large quantity of ammunition.
