A teenager was shot in his own home on Christmas Day.

During the robbery Coronado was shot in the shoulder. The robbers then ran from the home towards Highway Thirty Three.

Coronado was taken to PCMH to be treated.
Lawmen are still on the hunt for the robbers.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Pitt County Sheriff's office.

    There goes WITN censoring me again...and it wasn't even some of my best stuff. I'll try again. me from williamston, this is just another somebody got shot story, why would I comment. It happens alot around Greenville, Rocky Mt, Kinston, etc. I feel sorry for the guy who got shot, but it sounds a lot like a lot of other stories. That fact that you don't like me posting will not make me stop or post more to bother you or anything. Because you really don't matter.

    Everybody WAIT A Minute Please... Here is a story that has been up for a few days, and look......NO "TAD POLE". Where are you? Did you leave without saying good bye? Or did you go on down to the Chuck wagon and grab yourself a snack? Seeing that you must be hungry from being on WITN ALL DAY. BTW, push away from the keyboard from time to time. Some people getting really bored. And no I am not Alpha, I'm ME....

    To Vince, you say Greenville is "thug city?" Are you basing that on the amount of "thugs" per capita, for a city of its size, etc., or what? Are you sure other NC cities like Durham, Charlotte, Greensboro/Winston-Salem, even Wilmington don't rival Greenville in thuggeries? I do admit that GVL is pretty rough for a city in this part of the state but when you say the city is known as "thug city" by the rest of NC...well I'd bet that people in Charlotte for example would rather be in Greenville! Or maybe I need to swear off the booze for the new year to clear my thinking.

    How dare those gunmen go inside and do that, ruining a Christmas celebration of family members just so they can get some money. If it was my family that got broken into, I would be the one risking jail time just for at least trying to knock them out with my baseball bat or a frying pan. That is one of the worst things that those gunmen could ever do. It shows how heartless and sorry they are.
