Police are investigating a shooting that happened during a home invasion Wednesday night, and a source close to the victim says he was shot four times.
Friends say the man who was shot inside his home in the College View Apartments on East Tenth Street has undergone surgery since being rushed to Vidant Medical Center. They also say he is expected to survive.
A police report identifies the man shot at 25-year-old Blake Shackelford. Two other people were inside at the time. They are 23-year-old Maci Rae Billiot and 30-year-old Daniel Castro.
Sources tell WITN's Lindsey Fry that a woman jumped out a back window when she heard the gunshot. A sleeping roommate heard the scuffle and went to the front room where he saw two men attacking his roommate. The man said he ran back to get a shotgun, and when he returned to the front room, the two men darted out the door.
The police report does not list any description for the two men.
It happened around 9:00 p.m. at 2315 East 10th Street at College View Apartments.
Police are currently looking for two black males, but we don't have any further description at this time.
It's not known how serious the injuries are for the person who was shot. He was taken to Vidant Medical Center.
