Report: Father of 4 paralyzed in I-85 rest area shooting

Staff Writer

A father of four has been paralyzed from the waist down after being shot at a rest stop on southbound Interstate 85 in Cabarrus County.

The Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office tells media outlets that 43-year-old Greg McKee and his family had stopped at a rest area Saturday evening near Dale Earnhardt Boulevard and Exit 60. McKee went inside while his family waited in the car.

As he washed his hands, McKee says two men approached him. They stood on each side of him, and one of the men showed a gun.

As McKee ran from the restroom, he was shot in the back. The two men fled on foot.

Investigators say they believe surveillance video captured one of the suspects.

The sheriff's office is offering a reward for information.
