      Two shot, one killed in Scotland County

      The Scotland County Sheriff's Office is investigating a murder that happened on Joe's Creek Road, off of US Highway 74 in Scotland County, Tuesday night.

      We're told several men started arguing while working in a field. Deputies say that's when one of the men shot two others.

      One person was killed.

      The conditions of the other two are not being released at this time.

      Uribe Morales Avalos is charged with Murder and Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill.

      NewsChannel 15 is waiting to hear from Scotland County Sheriff Shep Jones to learn more details about the shooting, including the victims names.

      Officials say because the victims are Hispanic, they're having to rely on translators to help with communication.
