Gastonia Police Investigating Two Shooting Incidents

Wayne Howard

Gastonia Police are investigating two shooting incidents in the Highland Community. The most recent happened early Monday afternoon and sent two young men to the hospital.  19-year-old Deionte Sparkman, who was found by First Responders lying injured in the street, later died.  The other victim, who was driven to the hospital by a friend, had non-life threatening injuries.  Police had not provided the identity of that 19-year-old Monday night.

Another shooting happened Friday night in the same neighborhood. Two teens and a young man were injured in that incident.

Few details had been released by Monday night. Police were unable to say whether they believe the two incidents are related.
