While Detectives continue to investigate Tuesday night’s shooting at a home on Monahan Road, the man who allegedly pulled the trigger is now in custody. Martin Joe Anderson, 41, was arrested late on Tuesday night, booked on charges of first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and felon in possession of a gun. He’s accused of wounding James Blood, 40, of Castle Rock, who allegedly had come to Anderson’s house, upset over Anderson’s relationship with Blood’s estranged wife. Anderson allegedly fired one round from a 9-millimeter pistol, hitting Blood in the leg.
