KANNAPOLIS ó The Kannapolis Police are looking for two men who were involved in a shooting death late Monday night near Venus Street.
Authorities received reports of gunshots being fired just before 11 p.m. in the area of 1001 Venus St., a statement said.
Officers found Donyell Devein Simmons, 22, lying on Venus Street with a gunshot wound to the head. He was taken to Carolinas Medical Center NorthEast in Concord and was pronounced dead a short time later.
Simmons had been staying at 1001 Venus St. with a relative. The home had been forcibly entered.
Witnesses reported seeing two suspects fleeing the scene in a dark colored sport utility vehicle.
The motive for the shooting remains under investigation. Sgt. Chris Nesbitt confirmed Tuesday morning it is still too soon to determine a motive.
