Authorities are looking for a man they believe was involved in a series of shootings in Laurinburg on Monday night.
Terrence Green of Emory Street and Willie Blue of Salley McNair Road were each shot at McDuffie Village apartments, according to Lt. Cliff Sessoms of the Laurinburg Police Department.
The shootings all occurred around 7 p.m.
Green, 26, was shot twice and Blue, 35, was shot three times. The victims were transported to Scotland Memorial Hospital, where they remained hospitalized as of Tuesday afternoon.
At the time of the shooting, Blue was fishing in Leith Creek near the apartments. Green, who was indoors when the shooting began, came outside soon after and was shot.
“We believe that they were targeted - this was not a random shooting,” said Sessoms.
That shooting, and the possibility of multiple shooters, is still under investigation.
Around the same time, police received a call regarding a shooting at 401 Tuskeegee Drive, where officers found Edward Cain, 31, who was shot once. Cain, of Tuskeegee Drive, was treated at Scotland Memorial Hospital and released.
No one was injured in an additional shooting when the residence at 503 Corona Ave. was shot at. The home was occupied at the time.
At presstime, authorities were searching for Antonia L. Evans, 38, of 407 Corona Ave for involvement in the shootings of Blue and Cain as well as the Corona Avenue incident.
“The shootings occurred in the same area and the suspect drove from McDuffie Village to Tuskeegee and we believe then drove to Corona Avenue,” Sessoms said.
Evans faces two charges of attempted murder, one charge for felonious shooting into an occupied dwelling, one count of discharging a firearm in the city, three counts of assault by pointing a gun, one count of injury to real property, and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Police are still investigating the identity of Green’s shooter.
