Victim Injured And Vehicles Damaged In Gunfire

Greenville police are investigating a shooting that happened Saturday night where a victim was injured and two vehicles damaged.

According to police they responded to a call of shots fired in the parking lot of 322 Haven Dr. around 11 p.m. When officers arrived they talked with two people who said their cars had been struck by bullets.

A short time after officers were notified that a shooting victim had been dropped off at Pitt County Memorial Hospital. The victim, Marcus Hartley, appeared to have suffered from a gunshot wound to the right calf.

The victim was uncooperative and refused to proved any information the officers other than to state that he was shot while sitting in a car near WalMart and that his friend drove him to the Emergency Room after the shooting. The victim would not provide the name of the driver and stated that he did not see any suspects.

There is no suspect information available at this time. Police are still investigating.

    Yawn, here we go again, and again, and again. Greenville is such a gangsta town these days. I'm glad I don't live there, nor any of my family. It ain't what it used to be.

    He is not within his rights to withhold information regarding a criminal act. Demosthenes is right. At best, only the 5th Amendment would apply...unless his spouse (assuming he has one) shot him. You don't have to testify against yourself or your spouse - unless you choose to. Anything outside that scope if obstruction of justice and/or hindering prosecution. Realistically, the LEOs probably have an idea as to who the shooter is, but they need a witness to prosecute. There's no sense in arresting the thug if there's not enough evidence to prosecute. Simple math folks.

    Dear Self-Righteous Uneducated Masses, EVEN BEFORE OBAMA, it was illegal for a health care facility or physician to refuse medical treatment. You seem to have so many brilliant ideas about how to make this one person talk, but how many ideas do you have to combat crime - ideas that actually fall within the parameters of the US Constitution and US Bill of Rights and all of the other federal, state, county, and town laws involved in this and every other crime in our area? We all seem to grasp the fact that the man who was shot will risk is life & possibly the lives of his loved ones if he talks. HE is not the problem. The entity propagating an environment of intimidation and terror is the problem. Prison is not a deterrent. Perhaps with all your combined wisdom you can engineer a solution that is enforceable, effective, and sustainable. Now, go look up all the big words and get back to me with your master plan.

    Actually, Fact Bringer, witholding knowledge of a crime is a crime. The 5th only applies to self incrimination. In practice it's hard to prove, but we know what the real deal is right? If you hide something it usually means there's a reason.

    Who cares? If the people being shot don't care well then why should I?

    This can be simple. If he doesn't want to cooperate, don't treat him with my hard earned money at the hospital. Don't waste my money on trash!

    I am as disappointed as the rest of you that victims seem to be unwilling to cooperate- but those of you who are suggesting everything from prosecution of the witness to torture, need to read the Bill of Rights. He is within his rights.

    10-24, Victims refusing to cooperate, 10-8!!!

    If the victim doesn't want to talk, why waste money trying to get to the root of the problem? We all know there is gang involvement and if we wait long enough, they will elimate themselves. Unfortunately, I can see why GPD pursues these types of crimes. Sooner or later, an innocent bystander will be killed.

    To 'anonymous' whom quoted "snitches end up in ditches". The facts reveal your wannabe gangsta buddies wielding guns and shooting in public end up in prison or an early grave. You should have paid more attention in school - "snitches & ditches" was misspelled.
