Wayne County lawmen are currently looking for a "person of interest" in connection with a shooting that killed a 23-year-old early Saturday morning.

Uber Ortiz Salas, of 130 White Dogwood Lane, was pronounced dead at Wayne Memorial Hospital not long after deputies responded to a 2 a.m. call of shots fired.

Little else has been made public about the investigation, but officials from the Wayne Sheriff's Office would say that witnesses have been identified and interviewed -- that a "person of interest" has been developed and is, at this time, being sought for questioning.

Anyone with information pertaining to this case is asked to contact the Wayne County Sheriff's Office at 919-731-1481 or Wayne County Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.
