WAYNE COUNTY -

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office has found the man they say shot and killed two people while injuring two others.

Investigators say on Sunday deputies responded to a shots fired call at a home on Old Mount Olive Highway.  At that location, deputies found three victims; Anthony Kornegay and Nakiea Garner were deceased and Tre Stokes was injured with a gunshot wound to the thigh.  A fourth victim was found a short distance from the residence with a gunshot wound to his arm. 

Both the victims and witnesses identified the shooter as Jujan Cox, according to a news release.  Witnesses also said Cox used an assault rifle and fired into a residence and a vehicle.  Cox was located at a motel in Smithfield Tuesday morning; he's been formally charged with two counts of murder.  Investigators say additional charges are pending.
