Wilson police say two men were shot Saturday as they sat in a car on Tilghman Road.

Officers were dispatched to assist a gunshot victim in the parking lot of AutoZone, 1201 Tarboro St. SW, at 3:15 p.m., according to Wilson Police Department spokesman Sgt. Eric Kearney.

“It was reported that the original incident occurred on Tilghman (Road) at an unknown location,” Kearney said in a news release.

Kearney said investigators learned that 21-year-old Jahmerie Armon Lancaster of Wilson and 20-year-old Sincere Ya’mon Brown of Zebulon were sitting in a car in the Tilghman Road area. Police say an unknown assailant opened fire on the men.

Lancaster was struck in the throat area and medics rushed him to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, Kearney said. He was later released from the hospital.

Brown was struck in his right leg. Wilson County EMS personnel treated him at the scene.

Lancaster and Brown were sitting in a black Nissan Altima on Tighlman Road when the shooting occurred. It isn’t clear how the Altima ended up outside the auto parts store.

Police spent considerable time Saturday examining the car, looking inside and underneath it.  The Nissan sat perpendicular to parking spaces with its emergency lights flashing surrounded by crime scene tape while witnesses gave statements to police.

Kearney said police hadn’t identified a suspect in the shooting as of Monday afternoon. The case remains under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Wilson Police Department at 252-399-2323 or Crime Stoppers at 252-243-2255.
