Craven County deputies say have uncovered a Pit Bull ring during their investigation into a shooting Wednesday night. They believe that shooting is connected to the dog ring ring.
It happened on Mile Road, that's just inside the Craven County line, along Highway 17 North of New Bern.
Today deputies brought animal control officers to the property. There they found five Pit Bulls and one Beagle dog alive and another Beagle dead. Investigators are still trying to determine exactly who owns the property.
Deputies tell WITN News that Kevin Eure was shot in the face outside of his car. Investigators had originally thought Eure was shot in his car.
We're told the shooting happened during a gathering with some 20 to 30 people.
Deputies brought in tracking dogs to search for the gunman Wednesday night, but so far there have been no arrests.
Eure was transported to Pitt County Memorial Hospital where he is in stable condition.
