ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WSOC-TV) -- A federal investigation is under way after pictures surfaced of rock stars with firearms in Rowan County.
Eyewitness News has learned a former Rowan County police officer works with musicians like Tommy Lee of Motley Crue and Bret Michaels. Eyewitness News received photos of the musicians at the Rowan County Peace Officers Association, where they were brought to fire guns.
Mike Price owns property near the shooting range. He said he’s heard gunshots but was surprised to see the pictures.
"That's pretty cool. I don't know if it's legal or not," Price said.
Price added: "I believe it's their right as well as the police officers' to shoot and enjoy and have those things for personal safety and for fun.”
It could be illegal if any of the men has a criminal record that prohibits them from using guns.
