The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a homicide that occurred in the Harmony area on Friday evening.

ICSO deputies were dispatched to Rock Springs Road about 8:20 p.m. after receiving a report of a shooting.

The first deputy who arrived on the scene rendered first aid, and Iredell County EMS personnel also responded, but the victim was pronounced dead on the scene.

The victim’s name was not released pending notification of next of kin.

Sheriff Darren Campbell said a person of interest who left the scene on an all-terrain vehicle was located at a nearby residence and taken into custody. No charges had been filed late Friday night.

Detectives and crime scene investigators were still on the scene. The sheriff said investigators were in the process of getting and executing search warrants for two different locations.
