Burlington, N.C. — Two men were shot early Saturday during an argument at Black Jack's, and police were looking Saturday for the shooter.
Police said multiple people were involved in the altercation, and then "an unknown person brandished and discharged a handgun, striking both victims."
Darrick Lee McNeil, 35, was shot in the leg and was treated and released from Alamance Regional Medical Center.
Corey Adrian Wiley, 31, was more badly hurt. Police said he had multiple gunshot wounds and had been transferred by Saturday morning to another medical facility.
Officers on patrol in Burlington heard the shots being fired just before 2 a.m., and when they arrived at Black Jack's found a crowd of people fleeing the building. Both McNeil and Wiley had already been transported to the hospital.
Police did not have a description of the shooter to provide Saturday morning, but they asked that anyone with information about the incident call them at 336-229-3500 or Alamance County Crime Stoppers at 336-229-7100.
