Upon arrival, Dewayne Chunn, 50, of Mocksville, was located in a relatives’ vehicle with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his leg. Chunn was transported to Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center by EMS.

Davie Sheriff J.D. Hartman said the investigation led to a shop building off US 64 West, where Chunn was apparently shot with a rifle by at least two suspects looking to steal drugs. He said it was a targeted shooting.

Deputies executed a search warrant for the building and seized s suspected 18 grams of marijuana, 7 grams of cocaine and 4 grams of methamphetamine.
