LINCOLNTON, N.C. (WBTV) - Detectives with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a shooting into a residence in Denver, NC, Monday morning.

The shooting happened in the 3500 block of Niblick Court. Deputies said shots were fired into the home where a party was being held.

“When officers arrived on the scene most of those attending the party had left. Two females were still on the scene,” according to a press release from the sheriff’s office.
