The Cloverdale incident took place July 21 at approximately 4:30 p.m. According to police, a woman reported that a man had accidentally shot his friend in the leg at a home in the 18700-block of 60A Avenue.

The perpetrator fled the scene on a motorcycle.

Charges laid following Wednesday's arrest include aggravated assault and assault, as well as six firearms-related charges.
