A 39-year-old Lethbridge man accused of shooting another man with a Taser and BB gun is set to stand trial in the new year.

Clayton Wayne Jordan, who pleaded not guilty to several charges Nov. 23 in Lethbridge provincial court, is scheduled for a one-day trial on June 6 on charges of assault with a weapon, unlawful use of an imitation firearm, discharging an air pistol, possession of a prohibited weapon, and failure to comply with a release order.

On July 7, 2022 two men were involved in a dispute at a residence in the 1700 block of 10 A Avenue South, when one of the men tasered the other and shot him multiple times with a BB gun. The shooter fled before police arrived and the victim was treated for his injuries at the hospital.

A warrant was issued for Jordan’s arrest, but he remained at large for several days before he was arrested later in the month.

Jordan, whose matters were briefly addressed in court Thursday, also faces unrelated charges of possession of stolen property, altering or removing a vehicle information number, dangerous driving and driving without insurance. Those matters are scheduled to be back in court to today.
