Man Shot While On His Bike

Police need your help finding three men who shot at a man riding his bicycle

Officers responded to Nash General to talk to Maurice Staton who had been shot.

Staton said he was riding his bicycle in the 500 block of Ambler Avenue when three men stepped from a vacant home at 707 Clark Street and began shooting at him as he went by.

Staton left the scene but was shot in the arm.

He said he had a verbal argument with the suspects earlier in the day.

Staton was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

    How hard would it have been to begin this story with "Rocky Mount Police...."? Even though this is a website, this is supposed to be a "news" website so please include the "who, what, where, when". That shouldn't be too much to ask.

    I think I found them but I don't know if it's them. I have an Irishman, Chinese and a KKK member at gunpoint. Oh...who am I looking for. I forgot, the cops need our help and no description given. Ok guys sorry, you can go.

    I assume this happened in Rocky Mount??? I guess everyone is supposed to immediately know these streets & know they are in a particular city seeing WITN didn't give us this information... That is something I expect to see on WRAL's website not here.
