ROCKY MOUNT — Police are investigating a shooting that wounded a teenager and her mother last week.

A 16-year-old girl and 36-year-old woman were shot around 10 p.m. Thursday on the 100 block of Moye Court, said Cpl. Ricky Jackson, public information officer for the Rocky Mount Police Department.

The girl’s grandmother told multiple media outlets that the girl answered the doorbell and someone started shooting at her. Bullets struck the girl in the arm and leg. A shot grazed the girl’s mother, a teacher at Rocky Mount Preparatory School. 

“Emergency medical services transported both victims to UNC Nash Health Care with non-life-threatening wounds,” Jackson said in a news release. 

Police ask anyone with information to call the Rocky Mount Police Department at 252-972-1411 or Twin County Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111.

To send information via the Text-A-Tip service, text RMPOL and your message to CRIMES (274637). Police say text messages are anonymous.
