One teen dies, one injured in shooting






GOLDSBORO — A teenage boy is dead and a teen girl was severely injured in a Wayne County shooting Monday afternoon. 

Sheriff’s deputies found two teens, each with a single gunshot wound, on Capps Bridge Road near the Little River Bridge northwest of Goldsboro around 3:30 p.m. Detectives don’t believe foul play was involved.

Spencer Terry Garrison, 16, of Ash Landing outside Princeton, died in the shooting. Malia K. Porter, 15, of Kalmia Place near Pikeville, was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.

Paramedics took Porter to Wayne Memorial Hospital, where she was airlifted to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville. A patient care coordinator there said she was not listed as a patient Monday night.

Detectives interviewed people at the scene and are still investigating the shooting, according to a Monday statement from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.

"Sheriff Carey Winders expresses his deepest sorrow to the families of these two young people whose life ended before it really began,” the statement said.
