Police are investigating a shooting at an apartment complex in Havelock.

Officers responded around 12:25 PM to the front parking lot of Kelly Park apartments, where they found a man on the ground with a gunshot wound. He was taken to CarolinaEast Medical Center in New Bern for treatment.

The violence began with an argument that got out of hand, said Havelock city spokesperson Diane Miller, but she said it is unclear who many people were involved in the argument.

The alleged shooter left the scene in a box style burgundy or purple SUV.

Havelock Police have interviewed several witnesses in the case, but it is still under investigation.

Those who live at the apartment complex say the violence is unnerving.

"It's just bad, you know, because like I said, we have a lot of children running around out here," said Kelly Park Apartments resident Donald Smith.

If you have any information about the incident, you're asked to contact the Havelock Police Department at (252) 447-3212. 

Persons who wish to furnish information and remain anonymous may do so by calling the Police Tip Line at (252) 463-7115, or, by utilizing the Police website Tip feature by going to www.havelocknc.us, select Police, select Tips.
