BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va. - Botetourt County deputies have made two arrests after a late-night shooting and stabbing. 

Around 10 p.m. Tuesday, the 911 center started getting reports of shots fired in the 300 block of Tucker Road in Troutville, which is a neighborhood off of Route 220. Callers also said they heard yelling and had heard that someone had been shot. 

When deputies arrived at the home, they found a man who had been shot and stabbed, and a woman who had been shot. Both of them were taken to a hospital. It's not clear at this time how badly they were hurt. The sheriff's office is not planning to release their names. 

Deputies arrested two people at the home and took them to the Botetourt County Jail. 

According to the sheriff, the men were coming home from the Salem Fair when they got into a verbal argument with the victims, and it escalated. The victims are friends who live at that home, according to the sheriff's office. 

Neighbors told 10 News that they frequently hear gunshots and a lot of noise coming from the home. 

Twenty-year-old Troutville resident Matthew Taylor Green is charged with two counts of malicious wounding, reckless handling of a firearm, and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Twenty-year-old Roanoke resident Tyler Lanse Tatum-Wheetley is charged with one count of malicious wounding and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Both men were denied bail.
