SAMPSON COUNTY, N.C. — One of the victims in a Sampson County shooting from the weekend has died.

On Sunday, at about 7:35 a.m., deputies from the Sampson County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of gunshot victims on Carry Bridge Road in Autryville. When they arrived, deputies discovered Johnny Dale Carey Sr. and Jeffrey Dean Yarborough with gunshot wounds.

Both victims were transported to Sampson Regional Medical Center. Yarborough was treated and released on Sunday.

Carey was later transported to UNC Hospitals, where he was on life-support before he died Monday.

Authorities are looking for two men -- James Robert Bain and John Vincent O'Boyle Jr. -- in connection with the shooting.

Bain, 60, has brown hair and blue eyes, and stands about 5-foot-10 and weighs 180 pounds. He has a scar under his left eye and a scar on his right knee. Bain also goes by the name Bobby.

O'Boyle, 42, has brown hair and brown eyes, and is about 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds. He has a birthmark on his abdomen, a scar on his left arm, a tattoo on both arms and a tattoo on his left hand. He also goes by the name Yank or Yanky.

They were last seen driving a white Ford Bronco in the Beaverdam community, near the Sampson and Cumberland counties line. One of the suspects may have a gunshot wound, deputies said.
