staff report • Feb 7, 2013 at 11:40 AM

BLOUNTVILLE — The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a Thursday night shooting involving two siblings.

Just before 7:30 p.m., the SCSO received a report of a shooting at 311 Bowman Creek Road in Blountville.

When officers arrived on the scene, they learned that the shooting involved two adult males who are brothers.

Both men received gunshot wounds. One of them had already been taken to the hospital by a friend. The other man was transported to the hospital by Sullivan County EMS.

The shooting appears to be the result of an argument, according to SCSO spokesman Leslie Earhart.

The condition of the two males is not known at this time.
