Two more men shot in East Spencer

EAST SPENCER ó Two men who were shot Tuesday night and went to the hospital for care are providing little help in finding who is responsible for the shootings.
Both arrived at Rowan Regional Medical Center for injuries Tuesday night around 10:40 p.m. Both said they had just been shot on Long Street in East Spencer, according to a press release from East Spencer Police Chief Floyd Baldo.
The first man, Corey Sims, 21, had been shot twice, once in each arm, according to the report. Sims said he was shot in the 600 block of South Long Street, but gave no more information to Sgt. Darren Westmoreland, responding officer at the hospital.
The second victim, Matthew Jones, 42, arrived shortly after Sims. Jones told police he had been shot once in the foot in the 400 block of South Long Street. Jones reportedly provided little other information about his injury.
East Spencer Police are unsure if the two shootings are connected.
Sims and Jones are the fourth and fifth people reported to have been shot in East Spencer in the last two weeks.
All five of the shootings remain under investigation.
