FIRST ON 3 UPDATE: Deadly shooting at Columbus County party, deputies searching for shooter

READ MORE:

DELCO, NC (WWAY) -- Columbus County Sheriff Chris Batten says one man is dead and two women injured after a party turned deadly early Saturday morning.

Deputies responded just after 4 a.m. to a shooting at the Triple K Ranch on Big Branch Road in Delco, where Sheriff Batten says there was party that was heavily advertised.

According to the Sheriff's Office Dysheka Bell, 17, of 66 Hoover Road, went by private vehicle to Columbus Regional Health Care with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Miyah Moore, 16, of Big Branch Road, went to Cape Fear Hospital with a gunshot wound to the hand. Ulicus Robinson, 31, of 2742 Robinson Trail in Northwest, was transported to New Hanover Regional Medical Center with two gunshot wounds to the abdomen. Robinson died shortly after arriving at NHRMC.

According to Sheriff Batten, investigators believe the shooter was the same man who showed up at the party and was not recognized by anyone. We are told he was throwing signs and pushing people around. A fight started, gunshots were fired and Robinson was killed.

The shooter has not been found and no arrests have been made.

Investigators say early information is that the club was rented for a birthday party. Recent complaints have been made concerning parties at the club, the Sheriff's Office said. When officers arrived this morning the club and parking lot were vacant.

The Columbus County Sheriff's Office and the Northwest Police Department are investigating. Investigators ask that anyone who was at the club at the time of the shooting or has information to contact the Sheriff's Office at (910) 642-6551.

RE:Burn IN HElL

Actually I can honestly say i do not have anything illegal in my closet, my home, my life or my property and if I as a owner was well aware of the illegal activites that are going on and do nothing to stop them and then someone gets MURDERED becasue of it then yes the finger should be pointed at me too... Save your prayers for me and pray for the owners of this establishment that were the cause and effect for getting 3 "innocent" people shot.. Thank you and God Bless

This place is nothing but a

This place is nothing but a death trap its a little house sitting on a dirt road that is only one way in and one way out. How can you say this place is not a club? Its call the "AFTER CLUB SPOT" people always go there just about every weekend around 2:00am and leave around 6:00am. The only thing that change about this place is the DeeJay and the admission price. They NEVER check ID, they sell Alcohol, & Fried Chicken. Only thing this place care about is MONEY. The owners of this Daycare, Club, After Club Spot whatever you want to call this place really need to be held accountable.
I remember the first time I went to "THE RANCH" it was about 2yrs old. When we got arrived there was a few guys standing on this dirt road. They stopped the car two of the guys searched the cars and other guy was the money man and the other two search the men coming to the club. There was not a girl bouncer so the girls didnt get searched. There was soo many people in this LITTLE house. I felt like i was going to pass out & was unsafe so me and my boyfriend left. On the way out we had to wait for them to search the other cars before we could leave since its only one road to this place. I guess things have changed since then. I went back to this place this summer and the only thing that changed was NO ONE or NO car was searched. This place is a NIGHTMARE.
My prayers go out to the family that lost their love one. To those young girls that were out there remember you are still young and you have a life to live. Stop trying to grow up so fast the clubs and parties will still be there when you are of age to go and when you are fine another place to go have fun.

Shocking

Fried chicken?????? PRICELESS!!!

Heart and prayer goes out to

Heart and prayer goes out to the whole community.
Looks like a lease was established in this case and the least protects the owners and default ownership to the party leasing the establishment. May God. BLESS

Leasing

it is not true that the leasing party has all the responsibility. if the owners knew what was going on in they are responsible also. The owners knew what was going and had been warned many times that this could happen. That will make him responsible!

A lease establishment does

A lease establishment does not protect the owners if the owners are aware of the illegal activities that occur and do nothing about it... thats like saing if I have a home and a child is being abused in it and I am rented it to the childs mother and I do nothing about it even though i have been made aware of it numerous times and I see the bruises and hear the noise and have even been their when it occurs I am not liable to do something to protect them.. just saying

I DONT KNOW YOU BUT I HAVE LOVE FOR YOU;)

BABY I KNOW DONT ARGUE WITH THESE KIND OF PEOPLE THEY MIGHT THINK THAT WE DONT KNOW ALOT OF STUFF CAUSE WE IN MIAMI BUT TRUTH BE TOLD WE KNOW ALOT MORE THAN I TOLD MR.JAMES OH YEAH MR.JAMES HOW COME YOU NOT ANWSERIN THE PHONE FOR ME NO MORE HAHAHA. ! GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN

Dear sister response

Dear Sister.. I seen the reply below and wanted to wirte to you as well.. Helping children my butt.. they are chargeing to run illegal daycares from a no commercial prperty, and they have trail rides and sell alcohol and other things that should not be since Columbus County is a dry county. I hope you stick it too them...

KKK Ranch

Yes the owners should be responsible when they are well aware of the illegal activities and are profitting of such illegal activities and are aware of what is going on... you can tell me them keith brothers had no clue.. they were well aware and were to busy try to line there own pockets they tey put greeed before the care of others lifes... dont worry the Lord will judge hthem and he knows what they are up too.. And yes they should be held accountable if they rented a facility more then once to the same crowds or people knowing mischeif and illegal things aer going on and do nothing about it... think about it if it was your family member who died or better yet their family member I bet they would be sueing you... Hope they burn in Hell and in prison for all I care

Burning In Hell

Who ever wrote this really need JESUS??? They can't control what people due when u rent a place. U can only ask people not to have illegal things on your property. I bet right now that u have some illegal things in your closet right now. I want say, I hope u burn in hell or go to prison. I'm just going to PRAY for FOOL'S LIKE YOU, SO DON'T POINT FINGER AT NO BODY BUT THE SHOOTER.......

Revenge

Revenge has no more quenching effect on emotions than salt water has on thirst.

Triple K ranch

A Taste of HONEY @ the Triple K Ranch. They also have strippers. This place is a dump.The owner will let anyone and anything in that place.

??

So Im Assuming You're One? If the place is such a dump, DON'T GO BACK. If they let you in, your last statement was true.

KKK ranch

Triple K Ranch in Delco, NC is a private company categorized under Social Service and Welfare Organizations. Also read it is a NOT FOR PROFIT.

WWAY you need to check this out. Sounds very fishy.

Dozens of people were

Dozens of people were there.2 ladies were shot. And they don't know who shot them ? And nobody knows nothing ? A man was murdered. Not a single coward is willing to come foward, and stand up to this low-life, punk, monster, who murders people, and tell the police ? No wonder our society is so bad.

These 'Know-Nothing,Cowards' are almost as low as the murderer.

DEATH TRAP

I don't know why anyone would want to party at this place because its entirely too small!I've never been in the place but I did attend a party that a job chose for their Christmas party.The outside part where they had it look bigger than the building!They really need to shut it down before someone else lose their life in that DEATH TRAP of a club! My sympathy goes out to the family who lost their love one.God Bless You All!

Triple K ranch

Birthday party? what party starts at 1230am? If the "shooter" was someone they didn't know why would they let him in? If it was a birthday party of friends and family why wasn't there anyone there when the sheriff pulled up on scene? With a hundred plus people that was there you would think they would have been able to stop the guy instead of fleeing like criminals. There is way more to this story then what is coming out!!! To the family of the one that past away my thoughts and prayers are with you!!! Get your justices and just know the owners of the Triple K Ranch know what was going on!!!

I can believe that no one

I can believe that no one was there when the police finally showed up. I use to live in that county and in that town. One could commit a crime, have dinner at the crime scene and move residence by the time the police arrive.

OK THAT"S WHAT I'M ON

SAD.MRJAMES WHERE YOU WAS?

Delco

I can agree with you on that I had to call the police more than once and they came two hours later. I call the sheriff office one day to speak to Mr. Batten about the call I made and it took me forever to get to talk to him. His secretary said he was out and she would have him to call me back but he never did. So I called him back this time I talked to him and he had a detective to call me back. The detective told me there was no record of me calling 911 that night. Then there was one night I call 911 and about a hour later the 911 center called me back and ask had things calm down. I told them if not, some one would be dead by now and I then ask them where was the police. And by then there was no need of them showing up. Columbus County sheriff department only cares about whats going on in the other part of the county not in Delco, because they know whats going on; they just don't care.

investigate

First off northwest shouldnt be doing the investigating, the club is always full of columbus county people. Second you need to start with the
Clowns that threw the party and ask why security is always letting their crew in the club with weapons but patting everyone else down the door. This isnt the first the first time. Im just saying, dont have to be a detective to get on with this one.

wow...glad someone admitted

wow...glad someone admitted it was a "club" I thought it was just a rented facility... also the dummy who did the interview on the other station (who suppose to be the property manager of the dump) admitted they have kids there and something about a daycare... hello dont daycares need to be in a licensed facility.... just sayin...oh the owners know too...looks like someone could sue them and make them pay

for anyone who got any

for anyone who got any information about the death of my oldest brother i ask that you please contact the police... im still in disbelief myself but i promise i will not stop seeking justice for my brother death and yes the club owner will be held accountable for the death of my brother thank you guys for your prayers and may god be with all of you...

Dear Sister, I'm really

Dear Sister, I'm really sorry for the loss of your brother. I just wanted to let you know, the owners of Triple K ranch have helped many children in the community. They've taken many peple off the streets and gave them something to keep them occupied.The children love riding the horses and taking care of them. The ranch constantly have family related functions at no charge to the families. You may want to look at the people who had the party. I've gone to the ranch at least 30 times in the last 4 years. there were over 1000 people and not one thing has happened. It's clearly not the owners fault. There are many people who use the property at no charge. Trying to go after the owners would only result in others not getting help they need in the future. I'm sure it's difficult right now but please think of the people who need the facility. There is no other place in the area to help them.

Sorry?

Really? They have taken many people off the streets? What to sell there drugs? THERE ARE NEVER KIDS OUT THERE RIDING HORSES!!!! The only time kids are out there is when the illegal daycare is going on. I guess you don't know the Keith brothers if you think they let people use that facility free of charge! You said "it's clearly not the owners fault" are you kidding me? They knew what was going on in that place and for that it's there fault! They would have to be death,dumb,blind and stupid to not know what was going on!! NO ONE IS THAT STUPID!!!

Excuseeeeeeee ME !

I've never heard about them selling drugs. Have you? Also, the illegal daycare..If you've heard these things why haven't you told. Exactly! Because you heard it NOT know it to be true. Obviously, you're the only stupid one because you dont know how to spell "DEAF". You're highly intelligent. I know you're income is very low.
