Tense moments in Enfield on Thursday after a volley of shots were fired as Halifax County deputies responded to a shooting at Carriage House Apartments.

The Sheriff’s Office was helping the Enfield Police Department investigate the initial shooting, in which one person was shot in the head and another in the leg. Their conditions have not been released.

A sheriff’s deputy was speaking with two possible witnesses when shots were heard coming from behind a vacant house.

Neither the deputies nor the witnesses were hit by the gunfire and officials say the officer did not fire his weapon.
