GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WTVD) — Two Wayne County teens are dead after a double shooting in a pickup truck parked in the area of the Little River Bridge on Capps Bridge Road Monday afternoon.
The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said it got the call around 3:30 p.m.
Deputies found 16-year-old Spencer Terry Garrison, of Ash Landing, Goldsboro, dead in the vehicle.
Fifteen-year-old Malia K. Porter of Kalmia Place, Pikeville, was rushed to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville where she passed away early Tuesday.
Deputies said both teens suffered a single gunshot wound to the head. One gun was found in the truck. The investigation is not complete, but the sheriff’s office said evidence at the scene indicates foul play is not suspected.
Wayne County Sheriff Carey Winders said he “expresses his deepest sorrow to the families of these two young people whose life ended before it really began.”
Friends said the teens were boyfriend and girlfriend.
