Orange County deputies try to unravel conflicting I-85 shooting stories

Orange County sheriff's deputies are investigating a shooting that left two people wounded early Thursday morning.

Investigators received calls at about 3 a.m. that two people had been shot near the truck weigh station on Interstate 85 between Efland and Mebane. They learned that two people with gunshot shot wounds arrived at separate hospitals shortly after the initial call. Neither person sustained life-threatening injuries.

Investigators said they received stories from the victims which were not consistent with evidence located at the scene near the weigh station. They are continuing to follow up with multiple witnesses and also are reviewing video footage from multiple nearby surveillance cameras.

This incident did not appear to present an ongoing safety threat, authorities said.

Anyone with information about this or any other crime should contact Investigator Jeff Ray of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office at 919-245-2900.
