Logan County man arrested in shooting

OAKLEY -- A rural Logan County man is free on $50,000 bond after he was charged in Logan County District Court with aggravated battery and criminal threat.
The charges against William David Collins were filed in connection with a shooting in the western part of the county Tuesday, according to a statement issued by Logan County Attorney Margaret Mahoney.
The victim of the shooting hasn't been identified, but Logan County Sheriff Pat Parsons on Friday said the victim was released after spending a night in the hospital.
Collins appeared in Logan County District Court on Wednesday, at which time a $50,000 bond was set.
Parsons said Collins since has bonded out, and a preliminary hearing has been set for Wednesday, although it's expected to be continued to another day.
The 35-year-old Collins is a longtime resident of Logan County, living north of the McAllister community in the western part of the county.
Parsons would only say a handgun was used in the shooting.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is assisting in the investigation.
