Motorist shot on U.S. 70

Cooksey was transported to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville and was later released.

An employee at the Exxon gas station stated that sheriff’s deputies came to the station and removed a pickup truck, apparently Cooksey’s, shortly after she came to work at 4:30 a.m.

Monette said no bullet holes were found in the vehicle and it is believed that Cooksey was driving with his window down.

Heckman said the origin of the shot was unknown.

“We don’t know if it came from the ground (or) from another vehicle,” he said.

Monette said the department is following a number of leads and narrowing down the origin of the gunshot. 

“There has been a lot of celebratory noise going on,” Monette said.
