State v. Broom, 225 N.C. App. 137 (Jan. 15, 2013)

The trial court did not err by denying the defendant’s motion to dismiss a charge of attempted first-degree murder where the defendant shot the victim in the abdomen. The defendant removed the victim’s cell phone from her reach, left the room, returned with a .45 caliber pistol, and shot her in the abdomen with a hollow point bullet. He then denied her medical assistance for approximately twelve hours.
