Two men were shot Thursday afternoon during an altercation at Makemie Monument Park, a public area near here dedicated to the founder of Presbyterianism in the United States.
The victims sustained gunshot wounds to the body and were taken by Oak Hall Rescue to a medical facility where one victim was listed in stable condition as the other was treated and released, Accomack County Sheriff Larry Giddens said.
Giddens said on Thursday at 6:01 p.m., his office received a report from the Eastern Shore 911 Center regarding two men at the Temperanceville Corner Mart who had been shot.
Further investigation revealed that the shooting victims were involved in a fight at the Makemie Monument and were taken by personal vehicles to the convenience store.
Giddens said deputies and investigators spent hours processing the scene, collecting evidence, and conducting interviews. The investigation is continuing.
The Accomack County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Virginia State Police and the Hallwood Police Department.
