Roanoke Rapids police continue to investigate a shooting in the 500 block of Oak Street Monday evening which left a mobile home riddled with bullet holes.

A vehicle, which was not damaged, was towed away for investigative purposes, Captain Bobby Martin said.

In a statement, Chief Chuck Hasty said officers responded to the scene around 7 p.m. and learned the residence was shot into. Numerous shots were fired at the victims and into the occupied residence.

The suspects were described as males who fled the area on foot.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact Lieutenant C.L. Vaught at 252-533-2819 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.  


Meanwhile, Hasty reported the alleged suspect in a Sunday morning shooting — Keyshun Boswell of Littleton — received a $50,000 bond and May 2 court date.

Boswell, who is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, surrendered to police Monday.

The shooting occurred on Collins Avenue.
