Update On Martin County Shootings

One week ago a Greenville man was fatally shot while walking down the street in his hometown. His murder marked the second shooting in Martin County within seven days.

The investigation into the murder of 21 year old Curtis Sheppard in Robersonville continues with no arrests in the case. We're told by officers that they're following leads and hope to resolve this case as soon as possible.

Martin County sheriff's detectives are also hoping to arrest the suspect in the murder and attempted murder of two teens on May 23rd. Authorities tells us it was a gang related incident. Sheriff Dan Gibbs says, "We're still investigating it at this time and we're running down leads and people are, I think, afraid to talk to our investigators at this time."
