Teen Injured In Drive-By Shooting

A teenager is recovering after being shot twice in the leg Tuesday night in Belhaven.

Belhaven police tell WITN News they consider suspect Michael Davis armed and dangerous.

The victim was in a stopped car near the intersection of Pamlico and Pantego Streets around 9:20 p.m. when police say another car drove by and a person inside began shooting.

Police say two other people in the stopped car were not injured.

Davis, who is either 22 or 23-years-old and from Belhaven, is wanted on two counts of assault with deadly weapon with intent to kill and one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Police say the victim has non-life threatening injuries and is in good spirits today at a hospital.

    Just wondering if it was a drive by for real. It took a while for police to respond. That same person has run down the street in broad dayight shooting. Why? Nobody knows but nothing happened then either.

    Just another client coming in. I tell you. The best job security around has got to be the NC DOC. These thugs just keep coming and our great government hand outs just keeps on rewarding their mothers to give birth to them.

    Uh...since when is 22 years old defined as a "child"? And as far as being a "troubled child"...When his trouble becomes everybody els's trouble, he is more than a "troubled child"...He is a punk THUG.

    im young i know the people in this area very well, i go to school with these kids: the shooter was actually aiming for a 15 YEAR OLD BOY who happened to be in the car with the boy who got shot. it is so childish that a grown man of 22 will try to kill a 15 year old boy
