Sheriff's Office, Coroner's Office investigates
The Union County Sheriff’s Office reported Thursday that one man died in a shooting incident. According to Captain Scott Coffer, the Union County Sheriff’s Office responded Wednesday night at 10:35 p.m. to the 400 block of Pineland Road for a shooting incident. Upon arrival, a white male was found lying in the roadway, deceased from a gunshot wound. Investigators and the Union County Coroner’s Office responded and began to gather evidence and speak to witnesses. Coffer said the investigation is ongoing.
In a later news release from the Union County Coroner’s Office, the incident is not being investigated as a homicide, and no foul play is expected. Much like the shooting incident on Webber Lake Road last week, due to the nature of the case, further details are not expected to be released.
