ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. – Deputies are investigating multiple crime scenes in connection to a shooting that happened at the Madison Moose Lodge 1148 early Saturday morning.
About 300 people were attending a private Christmas party at the lodge when a fight broke out and shots were fired, according to Sheriff Sam Page.
Page said that of the six initially shot, two victims were found at the lodge, two at the Checkers convenience store on Highway 311 in Madison and one in the parking lot of Western Rockingham Middle School.
One victim was found over the county line in Stokes County, according to Page.
A seventh victim was later found at Annie Penn Hospital in Reidsville.
Page said all the victims were taken to area hospitals. All the injuries are currently reported to be non-life-threatening.
Daisy Goins was at the party. She was shot in the ankle.
“I'm very lucky, it could've been a lot worse,” Goins said.
Goins does not know exactly who threw the party but she says most of the people there were between the ages of 18 and 30.
”There could be people dead today because of them going in there and being stupid and shooting,” said Goins’ mother, Tammy. “I hope they do catch them because I'm going to be there at every hearing they have.”
Both suspects were believed to have attended the party before the shooting started, said Page. The suspects had their faces covered with ski masks during the shooting.
Sheriff Page says both were last seen leaving the scene in a silver vehicle driven by a black woman.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Rockingham County Crimestoppers at (336) 349-9683 or the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office at (336) 634-3232.
