A juvenile suspect in an apparent shooting Monday remains at large. He is considered to be armed and dangerous.
A 21 year old was pronounced dead at the hospital Monday, according to Vance County Sheriff Curtis Brame.
In a press release Tuesday afternoon, Brame said, “The Vance County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division responded to 906 Fred Royster Road, Henderson (in reference to) a person being shot multiple times. Deputies later discovered that the incident actually had taken place at 69 Cousins Lane, Henderson.”
Those two addresses are about a half mile apart north of Henderson after you turn off the Glebe Road.
Brame said, “When deputies arrived, they discovered two known females at the scene along with the victim Demonte Southerland, 21, who was laying on the ground with what appeared to have been multiple gunshots to his body.”
As the Vance County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigative Division began to conduct interviews and process the scene, it helped detectives identify a suspect.
“Detectives identified a known juvenile as a person of interest and sought a juvenile petition for the juvenile’s arrest,” Brame said.
The investigation in continuing.
