Police say a man was shot in the behind Saturday evening, after trying to buy marijuana in a Greenville neighborhood.
Chris Harrison, Jr. of Roanoke Rapids told police he came to Greenville to go "club hopping" and wanted to buy some marijuana beforehand. He told officers that he went to the New Town housing area where he approached a man to make the drug buy.
The 28-year-old man says two others then came up behind him and demanded his money. Harrison was shot as he was trying to run away and friends drove him to Vidant Medical Center.
Harrison has prior convictions for possession of marijuana and so far police have not made any arrests in his shooting. They say the case remains under investigation.
