It took nearly a week, but Rocky Mount Police are now telling the public that a young man was murdered in their city.
Rocky Mount Police released information Monday about a fatal shooting last Tuesday, December 23. Police say 21-year-old Marcella Hunter was shot dead at 816 Williford St. Another 21-year-old, Dominque Ransome, has been upgraded to serious condition from critical at Pitt County Memorial Hospital.
Investigators say a pick-up truck, possibly with South Carolina license plates, sped away from the scene. Detectives are interviewing potential witnesses.
