SBI Investigation of Hickory Shooting Continues   

HICKORY – Agents with the SBI are continuing to investigate the deputy-involved shooting that occurred in Hickory on Monday.  The SBI hopes to interview everyone who may have witnessed the incident or be in possession of any video footage.  

Agents from the SBI were not in the area prior to, or during the shooting, but responded to the scene because a request for an external and independent investigation was made by the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office.  After arriving, agents immediately began the independent criminal investigation.

Anyone with information about the shooting or in possession of any video, is being asked to call the SBI’s Hickory office at (828) 294-2226.  After hours calls can be received at (800) 3343000.  

pon conclusion of the investigation, and receipt of all external agency reports, the SBI will provide the complete case file to the Catawba County district attorney.
