NEW INFO: Shooting In Ayden Under Investigation

Authorities are investigating a shooting that happened in Ayden Wednesday night.

Pitt county dispatchers say they sent police to Lee Street just before 11:30 p.m.

A police report says 35-year-old Robino Holden was attacked while inside a vehicle on High Street. The owner of the vehicle tells WITN News that Holden was a passenger in her car, and the driver had stopped on High Street and went into a home. She says at that point Holden got into the driver's seat. The woman says that's when her friend noticed bright lights coming up behind the car and gunfire erupted. Holden then drove to her home on Lee Street where the woman called 911.

Police say two bullets were found inside the vehicle. The vehicle's owner says her friend was grazed in the back by one of the bullets and is doing okay.

The Pitt County Sheriff's office was told to be on the lookout for two men in a white Ford Ranger after the shooting.

    Welcome to the wild wild west where duels happen every day and gun slingers love to play. Why don't we re-establish the old practice used by the Romans and make all the hoodlums fight to the death in gladiator arenas? Add a few vicious lions and gators and problem solved!

    There were several shoots fired a couple of weeks ago but never heard anything about it on the news. That time it happened right off Snown Hill Street. The Town of Ayden likes to keep things on the "Down Low"...haha

    It IS hunting season. Maybe they're having a turkey shoot early this year. I can only hope the turkeys are gang members from Pitt county.
