One man wanted in a shooting in Roanoke Rapids Saturday surrendered to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office Monday.

His son is still wanted in the shooting which occurred in the South Rosemary area.

Scottie Plum Sr., who surrendered, faces charges of felony aid and abet, accessory after the fact and felony conspiracy.

Captain Bobby Martin of the Roanoke Rapids Police Department said the charges filed against Plum reflect he drove his son, Scottie Plum Jr., to and from the shooting site near the intersection of highways 48 and 158.

Motive in the shooting remains under investigation, Martin said.

One person sustained non-life threatening injuries in the shooting, in which multiple shots were fired. The victim declined medical treatment and left.

The vehicle belonging to an innocent bystander was also struck.

The elder Plum received a $35,000 bond and July 18 court date on charges filed by Officer M. Hunsucker.

The younger Plum remains at large and faces charges of discharging a weapon into an occupied vehicle and injury to property. There is also an outstanding order for his arrest.

Martin said the younger Plum tends to frequent the South Rosemary area.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to contact the police department at 252-533-2810 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
