A pig slaughter gone wrong.

A Grand Island man is charged with shooting another man in the leg while a group was slaughtering pigs just blocks away from downtown Grand Island.

Luis Motola-Palacio was in Hall County court Monday for his preliminary hearing.

He faces two charges-- second-degree assault and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony.

According to court documents, officers responded to a disturbance call at Motola-Palacio's home when they found Michel Garcia-Rivera shot in the leg.

Monday, Motola-Palacio waived his right to a preliminary hearing.  His next court appearance is scheduled for November 12th in District Court.

The slaughter of the animals remains under investigation.
