An autopsy report was released Sunday for 14-year-old Lyric Woods who was shot and killed last year in September.

ORANGE COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- An autopsy report was released Friday for 14-year-old Lyric Woods who was shot and killed in Orange County.

According to the report, Lyric Woods was shot seven times near a power-line easement in the western part of the county.

In August, officials released a report for 18-year-old Devin Clark, whose body was found with Woods on Sept. 18, 2022. The report stated that Clark was shot 6 times.

The two young people had been missing for more than a day when their bodies were found by some people riding ATVs.

In October 2022, police arrested and charged Isaiah Ross in connection with the shooting. He is facing two counts of first-degree murder in the murders of Devin Clark and Lyric Woods.

At hearing in January, Orange County prosecutors shared evidence that Ross shot Woods and Clark as they were trying to run away.

The motive behind the killings remains unknown.

Ross is being held without bond. He is awaiting his next court date.

ABC11 reached out to Orange County District Attorney Jeff Nieman to learn how his office plans to use this latest information, but he declined comment
