DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — A domestic incident in the Linwood area led to the shooting of three people Wednesday morning, the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office reports.

The sheriff’s office confirmed a man is in custody and that three people were shot, including a deputy, the suspect and a woman. Deputies are not looking for any other suspects.

At about 9:45 a.m., deputies responded to a domestic situation at 167 Cox Avenue in Linwood, according to the sheriff’s office.

The suspect was outside of the home when deputies arrived.

Sheriff Richie Simmons said in a news conference that a male deputy, who was among the first to respond, was shot. A deputy shot the suspect twice.

The deputy is alert and talking. He was taken to a local hospital.

No word on the condition of the suspect or the woman who was shot. No one else was injured.

Law enforcement is blocking off an area on Linwood-Southmont Road and Belmont Road, outside Lexington.

At about 10:36 a.m., a Lexington officer said reporters cannot pass on Linwood-Southmont Road because “they’re still shooting.”

FOX8 reporter Hayley Fixler spotted an armored vehicle and an SUV with emergency lights on driving quickly toward the scene.
