FOREST CITY, NC (WSPA) – One person is dead and another person was injured after a shooting in Forest City early Wednesday morning.

Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a home just after midnight on Wednesday, where they found the body of a 46-year-old man.

The man had reportedly been shot in the chest.

A girl was also grazed by a bullet and was taken to an area hospital.

The girl was expected to be released from the hospital on Wednesday.

Deputies said the shooting appears to have stemmed from a domestic incident.

The sheriff’s office also interviewed a person of interest overnight.

“We have been coordinating with the Rutherford County District Attorney’s Office, and it’s still an ongoing investigation,” Lt. Det. Jamie Keever, with the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, said. 

7News reached out to the district attorney and he said he cannot comment at this time, but said he should be releasing more information in the next few days.
