DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. -- The two men found dead in a car in Davidson County on Friday morning have been identified, according to Sheriff David Grice.

At 5:28 a.m. Friday, the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a suspicious vehicle in the 4000 block of N.C. 64 West, approximately five miles from Lexington towards Mocksville.

When deputies arrived, they discovered two deceased African-American males in their late twenties in the front seats of a black 2007 Ford Crown Victoria.

Grice said the car went off the roadway, traveled several feet across a grassy field, went through a shed and then crashed into a second shed. Sheriff’s investigators believe that both men were shot, Grice said.

Deputies are still investigating the sequence of events and have not released information about a motive or suspects.

The two victims will be transported to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Raleigh on Saturday for an autopsy.

Grice said the driver of the car has been identified as 27-year-old Joseph Dominique Anderson, of Salisbury.

The passenger was identified as 27-year-old Kevin Michael Caldwell, of Mooresville.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office at (336) 242-2105.
