The Wise County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday their search for three people they have named as persons of interest in a weekend shooting that left one person injured.

Lewis Wesley Hickman, III, and Paige Elizabeth Carroll, both of Big Stone Gap, and Aaron Leigh Adams of Norton are the individuals named in the WCSO report.

The reports says the three have not been charged in the shooting but Hickman and Carroll do have unrelated warrants out for their arrests.

All three are possibly traveling by foot after an abandoned car was found on Strawberry Patch Road, just inside the Lee County limits on Monday, the report said. The vehicle was impounded by police for processing as part of an investigation.

The shooting took place on Back Valley Road in Big Stone Gap on Saturday night. Chris Standifer, 50, was shot while standing in a garage on the street and investigators told News 5 that the shooter stopped in a car, fired the shot, then drove away.

At last report, Standifer was listed in stable condition after undergoing surgery.

Wise County officers told that a vehicle that met the description of the car in the drive-by shooting was involved in a pursuit Monday evening.

The sheriff's report says Hickman is considered armed and dangerous.
