Brunswick Co. Sheriff's Office investigating deadly shooting


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- According to the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office, detectives are investigating a shooting that happened in the Longwood Community earlier today.

The BCSO says a person was fatally wounded on Carlon Road minutes after 12:00pm. Investigators are currently on scene at this time. The victim's information will be released when the family has been given proper notification.

Wendell Daniels says the victim was his cousin. Daniels says he was asleep inside his home when the gun shots rang out.

"All of a sudden, I heard some shots, so with me being crippled, it took me a long time to get up," said Danels. "When I got up and looked out the window, I saw him running towards the road and then I heard three or four more shots and saw him fall right there in the road."

Daniels says he does not know who shot at his cousin. Detectives are still investigating.
