The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a man was shot early Sunday morning.

According to Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell, deputies were called to Perth Road in Troutman for a kidnapping on Sunday just before 4:30 a.m. When deputies arrived, they saw two women and a man standing in the parking lot near the walkway leading to the pier.

As deputies got closer to them, the man -- 30-year-old Markis Allan Kirkpatrick -- told them there was someone else on a boat who had been shot. The sheriff said the deputies found a man in his late 50s who had been shot twice near where the boats were tied up. In the parking lot, deputies found a semiautomatic pistol, three loaded magazines and a bag containing more items.

Paramedics took the man who had been shot to the hospital, where he underwent surgery. Deputies said Monday he was in serious condition. They added they are not identifying him due to his condition and the potential for additional charges in this case.

Kirkpatrick and the two women were taken to the sheriff’s office for questioning. Investigators noticed differences in their statements, they said.

From the boat at the pier, investigators collected shell casings and other evidence. They also got footage from a nearby security camera, which documented where the shooting happened.
