— Authorities are investigating a shooting at a Orange County convenience store Wednesday night.

Investigators said the shooting occurred at around 6 p.m. in the parking lot of Lunsford's Red & White, located on Highway 70. Hillsborough police Lt. Davis Trimmer said the shooting was the result of an ongoing argument between acquaintances.

Tyrus Torain, 21, of Mebane, was shot in the chest, but he is expected to recover, according to authorities.
