MIDDLESEX — The victim in a Wednesday morning shooting remains unconscious and in serious condition, said Police Chief Mike Collins.

Around 8:20 a.m. on Wednesday, Collins and Officer A. Cone were on a call on West Hanes Avenue when they heard around eight gunshots. They saw an older model burgundy Honda Accord speeding out of town toward Stokes Road, Collins said.

“Before I could even get to my patrol vehicle, we were notified by dispatch that there had been a shooting and a victim was in the vicinity of Morgan Street,” Collins said. “Within minutes, a 50-year-old Black male victim was located with several gunshot wounds.”

First responders arrived and took the victim to a hospital. The man underwent surgery.

Collins called in the Nash County Sheriff’s Office to help with the investigation.

“We are currently asking anyone who may have any information on this incident or saw a late-model burgundy Honda Accord in town to please contact the Middlesex Police Department as soon as possible,” Collins said. “I would like the citizens of Middlesex to know we take this act of violence in our quiet town seriously and we believe it was a random act and the threat is long gone.”

Collins asks that residents with security cameras in the area review their footage for a red or burgundy Honda Accord between 7 and 8:30 a.m.

Collins said his department will continue to work with the sheriff’s office, and the agencies will exhaust every lead to find the person responsible for the shooting.
