COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Deputies in Columbus County are investigating after a shooting just outside of Tabor City left one man dead and another in the hospital.
It happened just after 6 p.m. Tuesday when they say a call came in about a shooting at a home in the 300 block of Shug Norris Road.
Deputies say that’s where they found Lee Travis Wright, 20, of Chadbourn dead inside.
They say they also found a second victim, Jonathan Elgin Long, 25, who lives at the home, with several gunshot wounds. Long was transported to Loris Hospital, but there’s no word yet on his condition.
Deputies say an autopsy in Raleigh today should determine the cause of Wright’s death, but they are not releasing any further information about the crime until that exam is complete.
