DEVELOPING FIRST ON 3: Deadly shooting at Columbus County party, deputies searching for shooter

DELCO, NC (WWAY) — Columbus County Sheriff Chris Batten says one man is dead and two women injured after a party turned fatal early Saturday morning.

Sheriff Batten says the party at Triple K Ranch off Big Branch Road in Delco was heavily advertised. It is believed that the man who was killed is the same man who showed up at the party, and no one recognized him. We are told the man was throwing signs and pushing people around. Someone got into a fight with him, gunshots were fired and the man was killed.

The shooter has not been found.

The Columbus County Sheriff’s Office and the Northwest Police Department are investigating.

Officials are asking people with any information about the shooting to call 911 or the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office at 910-642-6551.
