A Littleton man surrendered to Roanoke Rapids police today and has been charged in a Sunday morning shooting in the 100 block of Collins Avenue.

The victim in the case remains hospitalized and continues to receive treatment for the injuries sustained, Chief Chuck Hasty said this evening.


Keyshun Diarrell Boswell, 21, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

Officers responded to Collins Avenue around 4:30 Sunday morning, Hasty said in a statement.

They found the victim inside the residence with serious injuries. The victim was taken to Halifax Regional and then airlifted to a trauma center for further treatment.

Investigation revealed an initial physical fight between the victim and Boswell occurred. At some point  Boswell reportedly shot the victim several times and then fled the area.

Boswell surrendered today to Investigator J.K. Davis.

Bond or an initial court date was not immediately available this evening.

What prompted the initial fight is not known, Hasty said.
