Quarles is currently being held in the Webster County Jail without bond. He’s charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and first-degree wanton endangerment.
Deputies say the victim was shot in the chest Nov. 2 outside of a home on South Mill Street in Waverly.
The victim either drove or was driven to Corydon where an ambulance met him.
A warrant was obtained last week for a Morganfield man, but he was cleared.
