GRIMESLAND, N.C. (WNCT) — The Pitt County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an early-morning shooting that injured two people, one a juvenile, in Grimesland on Thursday.
Pitt County dispatchers received a call just before 4 a.m. of a gunshot victim. They arrived to an area of NC Hwy. 33 East and Langley Drive and found an adult and juvenile with gunshot wounds.
Both were transported by ambulance to ECU Health Medical Center for treatment. Their conditions were unknown as of noon Thursday, officials said.
“I was on my way to work this morning and saw a bunch of Pitt County Sheriff’s (deputies) in the area,” said Ramzy Sarah, who owns a store in the area. “I’ve been here for seven or eight years at the least and we usually don’t have any problems in the Grimesland community. I’m not used to this, this neighborhood and community is pretty nice, safe and quiet.”
No further information was available as detectives continued the investigation. If anyone has information regarding this incident, they are urged to contact Pitt-Greenville Crime Stoppers at (252) 758-7777 or go online to www.crimestopper.org.
