Deputies have released a composite sketch in a robbery at an Interstate 85 rest stop that left a man with gunshot wounds.

Detective Bryant Strother with the Granville County Sheriff's Office told ABC11 that just before midnight Thursday, July 15, two men were robbed at the southbound rest area between Buttner and Oxford.

Strother said the men were in the rest stop bathroom when they were approached by a man somewhere between 18 and 25 years of age.

The suspect shot one of them multiple times. It appears that after robbing the men, the suspect jumped into a gold or silver Nissan Altima.

There is a possibility that an accomplice was in the vehicle, but this has not been confirmed by detectives.

Anyone with information is asked to call (919) 693-3100.
