Jam found the gun underneath some leaves in the woods.
Two Smithfield Foods employees were injured in the shooting; one of which was a female who was described as being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The suspect, Jaquante Williams, 20, was found in the woods just outside the hog processing plant. Williams is now facing two counts of attempted first-degree murder.
According to Sheriff Jim McVicker, the shooting stemmed from a weeks-long dispute between Williams and one of the victims.
