1 shot, 1 arrested after neighbor dispute

A Penn Valley man was arrested over the weekend on multiple felony charges stemming from a neighbor dispute in which a person was shot in the leg, authorities said.

Gregory Lamar Beck, 58, faces charges of aggravated battery causing serious bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon and being armed with a firearm during the commission of a felony, Nevada County Jail records state.

The shooting occurred Saturday afternoon in the 10000 block of Lazy Valley Road in Penn Valley, according to the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office. As a precautionary measure, the roadways into the area were closed, but reopened shortly afterward.

Authorities said the victim had no life-threatening injuries.

Beck, initially held on $100,000 bail, has since bonded out, according to Nevada County records.
