Zebulon police are looking for a white, four-door sedan believed to be involved in a Tuesday shooting at Best Tobacco and Vape and CBD and Kratom.

ZEBULON — The Zebulon Police Department says it’s looking for a person who shot a man around 6 p.m. Tuesday, officials said.

Officers arrived at Best Tobacco and Vape and CBD and Kratom, 407 W. Gannon Ave, and found a man suffering from a gunshot wound, according to Police Chief Jacqui Boykin. Officers began lifesaving efforts, and the victim was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, Boykin said.

The shooting took place in the parking lot, and the victim ran into the vape shop after, investigators said.

Zebulon police are looking for the occupants of a white four-door sedan that was seen in the parking lot at the time of the shooting. Investigators believe the car is an Infiniti.

Anyone with information is asked to call 919-831-6311.

“This type of activity is uncommon for our small town,” Boykin said. “It is heartbreaking to deal with such a senseless act in our community. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family.”

The Wake County Sheriff’s Office and the Wake City County Bureau of Investigation are assisting Zebulon police in the investigation. The Zebulon Fire Department and Wake County EMS also responded to the scene.
