MOORESVILLE — Authorities are looking for a Mooresville man accused of shooting two men at a motorcycle gathering at the Mooresville Dragway late Saturday.
The wounded men were both in serious condition Sunday evening.
Deputies with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said that Courtney S. Davis and Edward L. Stewart of Waxhaw, both 28, had both been shot by a small-caliber gun.
Investigators identified Quentin Odell Mathis, 28, as the suspect. Warrants were issued for Mathis on two counts of attempted murder.
Deputies had not found Mathis Sunday night.
Mathis was thought to be last living at 30 Selma Drive in Mooresville, in Iredell County, though he has also lived in Kannapolis. He is believed to be traveling in a green Chevrolet Nova with 20-inch wheels.
According to Detective Chad Moose, who was at the scene, the incident is thought to involve a domestic dispute.
A Salisbury Post reporter made attempts to speak with witnesses and bystanders at the scene Saturday night, but many refused to comment.
The first reports of gunfire at 155 Wilkinson Road, off N.C. 152, were called in to law enforcement about 10:40 p.m.
The wounded men were flown to Carolinas Medical Center NorthEast after they were shot while standing near the restroom.
One victim was hit in the neck. The other had gunshot wounds to the abdomen and hand. Authorities could not provide further details on Sunday.
Investigators asked that anyone with information about Mathis or the shootings call Detective Carl Dangerfield at 704- 216-8711, Detective Chad Moose at 704-216-8687 or Crime Stoppers at 866-639-5245.
