Police investigating early Sunday shooting

Police are seeking the public’s help to find a suspect who shot a man early Sunday morning. The victim, police say, is not cooperative and his account differs from that of his girlfriend.
The victim, a 22-year-old man, was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center around 3 a.m. with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Hospital officials said the bullet went through his body.
Police spoke with the victim, who told them he was shot behind Servco on East Innes Street. However, police say, his girlfriend says the two were sitting inside a van behind a brown Jeep in the 300 block of Partee Street. She said her boyfriend walked to the van to talk to someone inside. There were four to five gunshots and he was struck.
Investigators did search the area where the victim told them he’d been shot, but did not find any evidence a shooting took place there.
The girlfriend describes the assailant as a dark-skinned black man with a beard. She told police the suspect lives off Ellis Street. No other details were given. The victim was transferred to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for his injuries.
Anyone with information regarding the shooting incident and the suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245 or Detective Travis Shulenberger at 704-638-5333.
