SoVaNow.com / October 04, 2012
An early Tuesday morning shooting has left South Boston police with little information on possible assailants or motive for the attack.

According to South Boston Police Captain B.K. Lovelace, town officers responded around 4:30 a.m. on October 2 by going to Halifax Regional Hospital after being advised that a patient had been admitted with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Cpl T. B. White, an officer at the scene, said the victim was transported to Duke Medical Trauma Center for further treatment.

Lovelace said his department has little information on where the shooting took place or any of the circumstances surrounding the attack. Currently no suspect or suspects have been identified, Lovelace said.

Detective C. L. Carswell is leading the investigation. As of yesterday afternoon, Lovelace said he understood that Carswell had gone to Duke to try and interview the victim.

Anyone with any information about the shooting is asked to call either Detective Carswell at (434) 575-4272 or Crime Line at (434) 476-8445.
