BREAKING: Two shot at Nash County courthouse
NASHVILLE, NC (WTVD) — The North Carolina Highway Patrol and Nash County authorities are on the scene after two people were shot Tuesday morning at the Nash County courthouse in Nashville.
Pictures from Chopper 11 showed crime tape up around the entrance to the courthouse and yellow bullet shell casing markers.
Sheriff Dick Jenkins said deputies are searching for a single suspect. A North Carolina Highway Patrol helicopter was being used to assist in the search in a wooded area. Dogs were also being used.
Two people were shot on the front steps of the Nash County Courthouse Tuesday.
At this time, the main entrances to the Nash County Administration buildings are locked, therefore no one is being allowed to leave or enter the office buildings.
There was no immediate word on how badly the two people shot are hurt. The sheriff did not immediately have a description of the suspect to give out.
