The Morehead man accused of injuring two men when he allegedly fired shots into a crowd shooting off fireworks has been indicted by a Rowan County grand jury.

The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only. That person is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the state must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
