Wilkes County witnessed another shooting today at 7:51
Little is known at this time other than that the shooting occurred in the Traphill
area. A source within Wilkes Communications said he did not believe it was a
domestic situation, but did involve only two people- a shooter and a victim.
The alleged shooter is in custody- but his identity has yet to be released.
Wilkes EMS transported the victim to Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem via
ambulance. No word on how many shots were fired, or the victim’s condition. Uncomfirmed reports say the man was shot in the chest. At
this time, officers and detectives are on the scene near Shumate Mountain Road investigating. We’ll have
more information as it becomes available.
