Nearby was Whitaker’s 7-year-old daughter, who had been shot once in the back, deputies said.

Paramedics took them both to Atrium Health in Charlotte. No update on their conditions has been released.

Investigators said the shooter, 27-year-old Paul Lamkin Jr., ran off into the woods before deputies arrived.

Authorities were searching for him in the woods off Horseshoe Lake Road when they heard him calling for help.

A short time later, deputies found Lamkin. He had apparently fallen from a 50-foot cliff into a quarry and suffered serious injuries.

Deputies ordered Lamkin to drop a pistol he was holding, which he did. EMS crews then carried him out of the woods and took him to the hospital.

Lamkin has been charged with two felony counts of attempted first-degree murder and one felony count of discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling.

He will be booked into jail once released from the hospital. Authorities said Lamkin was the woman’s boyfriend and the girl’s father. Source.
