WOODLEAF, N.C. (AP) — Deputies in a North Carolina Piedmont county say they need more information about a weekend exchange of gunfire that they believe left one man dead and likely two others wounded.

Media outlets report Rowan County Sheriff’s Office deputies going to Woodlief found 35-year-old Robin Otto Worth Jr. of Salisbury dead from a gunshot wound about 4 a.m. Saturday.

The sheriff’s office also believes two men with gunshot wounds who went to a Statesville emergency room several hours before are connected to the Woodlief violence. The sheriff’s office says those men were uncooperative with hospital staff.
