Two people shot in Orange County

ORANGE COUNTY (WTVD) -- The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating after two people were injured in a shooting Saturday afternoon.

Deputies responded around 1:45 p.m. to a call of shots fired into an occupied vehicle at the D-N-G Mart on Highway 86 just north of Highway 70. No one involved was on scene when authorities arrived.

Witnesses told deputies that two vehicles pulled into the parking lot and the people got into a verbal argument which lead to a physical confrontation. They got back into their cars to leave and as one of the vehicles started to pull off, it stopped and a passenger exited, walked toward the other car, and began shooting into it, witnesses told authorities.

The victim's vehicle was found in the area of Sherwood Lane in Hillsborough. Authorities say one person was taken to a local hospital before being transferred to UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill with non-life threatening injuries.

No other information was released.
