ELM CITY — Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a homicide after a passerby found a man with gunshot wounds lying in the road early Saturday.

Authorities say 43-year-old Steven Malik Dalmida of 411 Davenport St., Rocky Mount, died on the 5100 block of London Church Road outside Elm City. Deputies and Wilson County EMS medics responded to the scene at 4:15 a.m., according to Wanda Samuel, Wilson County Sheriff’s Office chief of staff.

Samuel said the person who found Dalmida rendered aid, but the man stopped responding. Emergency medical technicians administered CPR and pronounced him dead.

“Victim died by gunshot,” Samuel said in a Monday email to The Wilson Times. It wasn’t clear whether Dalmida was shot more than once.

Investigators are working to locate anyone who witnessed the shooting or anyone with information about Dalmida’s death.

“All information is considered valuable,” Samuel said.

Dalmida’s killing is the first homicide of 2022 in the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office’s jurisdiction. The county’s last killing was Dec. 26, when a pregnant woman was fatally shot after a fight broke out during a Christmas party at the Evolution Music Hall on U.S. 301 outside Wilson.

Deputies cleared that case in late February, charging a man with first-degree murder and murder of an unborn child in the woman’s death.
