DOBSON, N.C. -- Surry County deputies released the name of one of the victims Friday of a double shooting Thursday night near the town of Dobson.
Deputies answered an 8:40 p.m. call from a home on Cave Road. Shortly after they arrived, they heard gunshots and found a man and a woman inside, both shot once in the head. They were life flighted to Wake Forest Baptist Hospital.
The woman's been identified Margaret Dickson. At last word she was in critical condition. The man's name isn't being released pending notification of next of kin.
Sheriff Graham Atkinson said the shootings came after a fight between the two. A third person, believed to be the woman's son, left the house before the shots were fired.
