A Martinsville man is in jail, charged with shooting into an occupied car in an incident that happened last week.

Anthony Eugene Moore was arrested Tuesday and charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle, possession of a firearm by a violent felon, reckless handling of a firearm, and discharging a firearm within the city of Martinsville.

The 36-year-old is being held in the Martinsville Jail, without bond.
