Police Find Man Shot In Head After Traffic Accident

Elizabeth City police say there was more than just a car crash Tuesday afternoon at the corner of Church and Seldon streets, inside one car they found a man shot in the head.

Police say Rahmel Mallory is in critical condition at a Norfolk hospital after they found him in a car that they say ran a stop sign and struck another car at the intersection.

Their investigation shows that prior to the accident there was an argument between the shooter and the driver of the car, Marcos Nunez. The gunman fired a shot, hitting Nunez's car and wounding Mallory.

Prentis Davis is charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon with the Intent to kill, inflicting serious injury, and discharging a weapon into occupied property, inflicting serious injury.

Nunez, the driver of the wrecked car, was charged with reckless driving and unsafe movement violation. The driver of the other car was injured in the crash and was taken to Albemarle Hospital for treatment.

    Instead of sending these guys to prison....Send them to the front lines of the wars were in. If they want to shoot people that's the perfect place for them. Just my opinion.

    Oh this is such a surprise! Elizabeth City-the Harbor of Hospitality-NOT! Yes folks, there actually is a lot of crime there and generally the cops keep it in one area of town but every now and then, it spews over.

    I went to school with Prentis Davis. He was actually my first friend ever here. The Prentis Davis I knew wouldn't have done this, though I am not saying he didn't because I have no place to say that until proven guilty or not. The Prentis I knew was a happy basically big guy, that I called big bear. Though that was when I went to school with him. I haven't seen him since I graduated I remember looking at him and we were all joking about how we made it and were of to do better things. Seeing his face on the news upset me greatly and my prayers and sorrow go out to all the families involved.

    While Obama quickly sends the military to everyone elses defence, USA thugs kill more people per day than in any other country or war. BUT LETS NOT VIOLATE THERE RIGHTS!!! What a joke. Make prison life hard and they will not ENJOY being there!
