Sheriff: 2 men wanted after 7 shot at the NC Christmas party

MADISON, N. C. – Two suspects were tracked down Sunday after North Carolina researchers say they shot seven people at a private party attended by hundreds of people.

None of the victims appeared to suffer life-threatening injuries after a shooting early Saturday at a Moose Lodge in Madison, approximately 25 miles north of Greensboro, deputies said. The two men were still on the Sunday and no other details were being made public, Rockingham County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Kevin Suthard said.

Deputies said a fight broke out during the party was attended by 250 to 300 people. Witnesses told investigators that the two gunmen participated in the party. They covered their faces with ski-masks and opened fire before speeding away from the scene in a silver car driven by a woman. The car’s make and model were not known.

Daisy Joins was a shot in the room of the party. She said that most people present were between the ages of 18 and 30 years.

“I’m very happy; it would be a lot worse,” Joins said told WGHP (

Deputies described one of the shooters as a black man with dreadlocks wearing a brown jacket and black pants. The second suspect was described as wearing a light green jacket and black pants.

Responding deputies found only two of the gunshot victims at the scene. A to a hospital 30 miles away in Reidsville. The rest was found at three other locations.
