Deputies investigating after several shots fired during drive-by in Bladenboro


BLADENBORO, NC (WWAY) -- Deputies are investigating after they say several fired shots during a drive-by shooting at a Bladenboro party early Sunday, sending one person to the hospital.

Bladen County Sheriff's deputies say it happened on Twisted Hickory Road just before 4 a.m. That's where witnesses told them a vehicle with several people inside pulled into the backyard of the party there and began shooting.

Deputies say after several shots were fired, the vehicle took off in an unknown direction. One person who was there at the time of the shooting was hit in the forearm and is now recovering in the hospital, according to the sheriff's office.

They say witnesses were unable to give a description of the vehicle or its occupants. Though there was evidence of a large gathering at the home there, deputies say by the time law enforcement got to the scene, only a handful of people were left. Deputies do say a camper and another vehicle sitting in the backyard were also hit by bullets.

Deputies ask anyone with information to call the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office at (910)862-8141.
