Nearly three weeks after a triple murder that ended with law enforcement shooting the alleged gunman, police continue to investigate the motives behind 40-year-old Ian Sherrod’s actions during the shooting spree.
“Detectives are looking at every component and every angle to ensure that nothing is left uncovered,” Tarboro Police Sgt. Jesse Webb said. “Naturally rumors are going to be floating around and we are taking it as our responsibility to make sure we stick to the evidence that is presented to find the true motive.”
Local detectives and SBI agents have interviewed numerous people who were close to the situation or that knew the people involved. But to date, they can’t get a clear answer to why Sherrod went on the rampage.
