WHITAKERS, NC (WNCN) — Nash County Sheriff’s Office deputies say one person is dead and at least one other person was shot early Sunday morning after a large party in Whitakers.
At around 1:30am MPs were called to the 3600 block of Lonesome Pine Road over a shooting.
Deputies said they arrived at the scene and found a large party of about 200 people was taking place there.
As the party drew to a close, some sort of altercation reportedly broke out and shots were fired.
MPs say one person was pronounced dead at the scene and another person went to hospital with a gunshot wound to the hand.
Investigators believe the suspects left before officers arrived at the scene.
They say the incident appeared to have happened between two groups who know each other and that the shooting was no accident.
The sheriff’s office is not releasing the identity of the victim at this time.
Investigators are continuing to follow up on the leads, investigators say.
Anyone attending the party or anyone with information is asked to contact the Nash County Sheriff’s Office at 252-459-4121.
