Breaking: WCSO investigating reports of an overnight shooting incident

The Walton County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating an incident regarding reports of a shooting on Nunnally Farm Road overnight.

“It was not a drive by shooting in the sense that a house, vehicle or person was targeted. It was just shooting into the ground, ” Major Scott Whisnant of WCSO said. “The incident is still under active investigation and may be tied to other related incidents.”

Walton County Sheriff’s Joe Chapman said he received information on the incident at 12:07 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 9.

“We had reports of a shooting and found several cartridges in the road but no houses were hit. We don’t know if they were shooting at an animal, shooting into the ground or just shooting to be shooting,” Chapman said. “We also have a report of a vehicle being shot near the Walton Newton County line. We are currently investigating to see if there is any connection.”

Chapman said nobody was injured in either incident. Monroe Police Department is also investigating a drive-by shooting that took place on Aug. 11, 2019 on  McDaniel Street in Monroe. In that incident nobody was injured either, but several bullets were shot into a home.
