Local News

A Union County man was sent to the hospital Friday afternoon after he was found suffering from a gunshot wound.

Officers were called to Megan Lane in the Luttrell area around 4:11 p.m. for a man found in a ditch with a single gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital. His condition is not available.

A man was detained on the scene in connection to the shooting.

Neighbors say they are shocked by what happened.

“I have a sixteen year old daughter and they walk a lot,” said Tina Wood. “She could have been walking by there and got shot in the mix of all that.”

Wood says she didn’t know the shooter well, but saw him on occasion.

“I’m not saying he was violent or anything. He was different. He stayed to himself. They would go out maybe three or four times a month. They would go out to the doctor, grocery store or whatever.”

The incident is currently under investigation.
