WOOD COUNTY, W.Va. (WTAP) - Wood County sheriff’s deputies spent much of the day Thursday investigating a pair of reported shootings in a remote area of the county and are now looking for a silver Acura SUV with Ohio license plates that might have been involved.

Sheriff Steve Stephens said deputies received two calls about 11 a.m. related to shots being fired in the vicinity of 2900 block of Loomis Ridge Road and 2100 block of Laurel Creek Road.

He said a resident on Loomis Ridge reported seeing people in a silver car possibly shooting at cattle.

About the same time, Stephens said a resident on Laurel Creek Road reported shots being fired near his residence.

According to Stephens, deputies recovered several .45 caliber shell casings and found a window shot out in a disabled vehicle at the Laurel Creek location.

There were no injuries, and no arrests have been made.

The incidents remain under investigation by deputies.
