Officers responded to the shooting around 8 p.m. and located a person who sustained injuries to the hand and back. The victim refused medical treatment and left the scene.

Counterfeit money

On Friday, Hasty reported Investigator C. Babb conducted an investigative stop around 11 a.m. at Ninth near Jefferson streets.

Justin Keith Medlin, 25, of Roanoke Rapids, was reportedly found in possession of counterfeit $100 bills, which had apparently been ordered from the internet.

Hasty said the bills, which had Chinese figures on them, appeared to have been washed to remove the certain features from them.

Babb charged Medlin with possession of five or more counterfeit instruments. He received a $1,000 bond and June 6 court date.

Officers C. Batchelor and N. Velazquez assisted.
