WINDSOR, N.C. (WNCT) — The Bertie County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance as investigators look into a homicide that happened Tuesday.

Investigators arrived at 2125 Governors Road in Windsor on Tuesday at around 9:39 p.m. after a call that someone had been shot. Deputies found Ricky Gilliam, 68, dead with multiple gunshot wounds. Deputies began CPR upon arrival until medical assistance came before Gilliam was pronounced dead.

A relative at the home said the doorbell rang and as Gilliam approached the door, several gunshots were heard from the outside. The relative said she then contacted Bertie County Communications. An investigation began with officials collecting evidence, canvasing the neighborhood and viewing surveillance video, Bertie County Sheriff Tyrone Ruffin said in a Facebook post.

Ruffin said the NC State Bureau of Investigation is assisting in the investigation.

The sheriff’s office is asking anyone who was in the area of the 2100 block of Governors Road between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Tuesday and “noticed anything suspicious such as a vehicle on the side the road, person walking, or anything out of the ordinary” to call 252-794-5330.
