Sheriff's Detectives Investigating Drive-By Shooting

Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release


LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Lincoln County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating a drive-by shooting where shots were fired into an occupied dwelling and a vehicle parked in the driveway.

Deputies were dispatched to the residence in the 400 block of Long Meadow Lane, Lincolnton, NC around 7 a.m. on March 17, 2021 when the homeowner discovered the incident after he got his nephew ready for school. That is when he found two bullet holes through a glass storm door and the wooden front door.

He told officers that he heard approximately ten shots fired around 10 p.m. on March 16, 2021 but didn’t suspect anything suspicious. Two bullets were located inside the residence, the first on the floor inside the front door and a second projectile in the ceiling. Bullets also hit his vehicle striking the driver’s side fender and the driver’s side rear tire that was deflated.

Deputies recovered shell casings from the roadway in front of the home. No one inside the home was injured.

Investigation into the incident is continuing by Lincoln County Sheriff’s detectives. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 704-732-9050, the Lincoln County Communications Center at 704-735-8202 or Lincolnton/Lincoln County CrimeStoppers at 704-736-8909.
