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.

Non profit Tripple K funded by taxpayers

Yes this is sad and should be looked into before more are killed or harmed. This place has tapped into taxpayers' money and has received pork barrell money from lawmakers needing votes. it is a haven for crime and though some good people do attend many criminals do. Why do the taxpayers pay for this? It cannot be right. WWAY you need to investigate this and the community organizers that obtain money from the taxpayers. Ask Mitchell Tyler, RC Soles and Bill Rabon. If they are truthful they will tell you about the money they send in there.

Excuseeee me

you must be so intelligent either becasue you can't spell excuse... LOL oh and it should have be dead not deaf becuase you butt would have to be dead in order to NOT know what goes on there... Now spell MORON thats what you are...

Not An Isolated Incident

This "party" was not an isolated incident, the ranch is "rented out" almost every weekend night. Numerous complaints have been called in to the 911 center and sheriffs office. Very little to no action has ever been taken. The AFT and SBI need to investigate this place for alcohol and gambling violations since the CCSD seems to want ignore it. How many more need to die before this place is shut down. The property owners know what goes on there and the family of the injured should hold them responsible with a civil law suit.

Good parenting skills exhibited...

by the parent(s) of Dysheka and Miyah...what in the hell were these two doing there...or should I say who were these two doing there.

Who are you to criticize

Who are you to criticize someone's parenting skiils?! That is so disrespectful. If they're not your kids, why are you worried about what they're doing? You know what assuming does!!! Don't try to make it seem like it was their fault. Stay in your place. The shooter is responsible!

Facebook

Both of the girls who were shot have a birthday party planned next weekend at the ranch. Just go to their facebook page and check it out. Praying for all-RIP Mr. Robinson

NOT A BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!

This wasn't a birthday like there saying!! This party has been going on for the past four weekends. They don't even start coming in until 1130 or 1200 and don't stop the party until after 530am. This was Friday and Saturday night for the past four weekends. The owners should be held accountable!!! They knew this activity was going on and didn't do anything about it. I hope the guys family that past away takes action!!

Triple K Ranch

This wasn't a Birthday party!!!! This party has been going on every friday and Saturday night for the past 4 weekends. The party didn't even get started until 1130 or 1200. The last four weekends they were out there later then 530am!!! Night club not a party!!!

triple k ranch

We really don't known if the two men new either other,I heard it was gang related and drugs.Somebody had to running off at the mouth or something, No one just don't go up to someone and start shooting them for nothing. SO LET'S JUST GET THE FACTS OK????

we re not surprise

The citizens in this area are concerned for their welfare and safety due to multiple incidents that occur surrounding Triple K Ranch. This is a dangerous place & the owners have been notified by the people of the community about the suspected criminal activity at the site and the noise. Columbus County Sheriffs Dept. has been made fully aware and have done nothing as well. Maybe this will be an end to it. Also there is a known that a Community Support Agency in the area that has things on this property during the daytime for people with mental and developmental disabilities that are Medicaid funded by the taxpayers and there are alleged night clubs, drugs and alcohol at the same location at night. It concerns us that you can rent a faciltiy to anyone for and not have any further responsiblity to the community.. and do they pay taxes on their profits.. maybe some books need checking

TRIPLE K RANCH

The Triple K Ranch is a RANCH not a nightclub. Yes, there are parties about every weekend BUT there are also birthday parties, family gatherings, & horse club events. Do you think they would be having all of these events at a club?? NO! The owner should not be held responsible if the building was reserved. Other than the shooter,noone should be held responsible. FYI:If you're going to make comments, PLEASE STATE FACTS .If a person get shot in a school house or any other public place are they responsible?????

Really??!!

First off to you Guess Two.....Triple K is an afterhours club.....come on tell it for what it really is!!!!! And yes, the owners are not obvilious to what is goin on around there. The almighty dollar is worth more to them then anything else. Alcohol without permits, drugs....I agree what "credible" est. will start at 1230 and end around sunrise....I know...I know....an "after hours" club. So yes for that the owners should be held accountable too. To the family......sorry for your loss, obtain you a lawyer because you have a great case!!!! With any luck that place will be SHUT down for good!!!! oh and to your remark about other public places and are they responsible....damn right they are if they are allowing illegal activities to go on on the property.

Sounds like he went looking...

..for a fight and got more than he wanted.

no one deserve to die and i

no one deserve to die and i know my big brother didnt start any mess but god will take care of the person who killed him far better then we can god bless..

You really have no ideal what you are talking about, maybe you went looking for a fight and did what you wanted.

I'm not talking about the victim, I was referring to the shooter. Sorry for the confusion.
