Man Riding Bike Murdered In Rocky Mount

A man riding a bicycle was gunned down last night in Rocky Mount and now police are searching for his killer.

Dead is Jeffrey Price. Police say the 48-year-old man was found on Cedar Street around 7:20 p.m. with two gunshot wounds. An investigation shows that Price was riding his bicycle when someone fired multiple shots at him.

The gunmen left, possibly in a dark colored vehicle and Price died later at Nash General Hospital.

Department of Correction records show Price was last in prison in 2005 on a larceny charge. He had also been convicted of two counts of assaulting a child and first degree burglary.

The victim had a charge pending in Edgecombe County for assault with a deadly weapon, while in Nash County for resisting arrest and misdemeanor larceny.

    Sounds sorta like a tidbit of "vigilante justice".

    By the way when Rocky Mount asks for military help be sure they send soldiers to Greenville. The rest of the "shootem family" resides here.

    Said before, but here goes- This is Dodge City, but we got no Wyatt Earp to clean it up. Matt Dillon would certainly do as well.

    What difference does it make what his record was/is? No one deserves to die that way. I hope that his past does not move him to the bottom priority- everyone deserves justice no matter what they have done.

    How cowardly can you get! Shooting someone on a bicycle.

    I believe that we need help from the military to get Rocky Mount under control. Their current plan of action is OBVIOUSLY not working out!!! I'm tired of living in a crime-ridden city.
