Man seriously injured in Bracey shooting / June 17, 2020

Mecklenburg County deputies are investigating an early morning shooting Saturday in Bracey that left one man seriously injured.

According to Sheriff Bobby Hawkins, deputies were patrolling the area around the 7500 block of Highway 903 in Bracey around midnight Friday when they heard sounds similar to gunshots or firecrackers.

Sgt. Baird, who had been stopped at the Lake Gaston Fire Department, reported seeing numerous vehicles entering a private drive at 7598 Highway 903 prior to the shooting and then observed vehicles leaving the same address just after the shooting.

Cpl. Clayton, who was also patrolling in the area, spoke to the driver of one of the exiting vehicles and was told by the man that he was in attendance at a private party when the shooting began.

While Clayton was interviewing the unnamed witness, Baird received a call from the 911 dispatcher telling him there was a male subject at the emergency room at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital in South Hill who had sustained a gunshot wound.

The victim was later transported to MCV Hospital in Richmond where he remains in stable condition.

Hawkins said the victim, whose name has not been released, sustained serious injuries after being shot three times in the lower extremities.

The case remains under investigation and no arrests have been made at this time. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s office at (434) 738-6171 or call Crime Solvers at 877-676-8477.
