In nearby Bedford County, the Sheriff's Office says they have arrested a man who allegedly fired shots at a car with two adults and two children in it. 

Officials said Sunday that Gulberto Olascoaga of Lewisburg is being charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder. Olascoaga is accused of shooting at the car near Whitaker Road and wounding a woman in the head. The woman who was injured in the shooting was treated at the hospital and later released.
