Posted July 5, 2011
Red Springs, N.C. — Authorities in Hoke County are looking for two people wanted in connection with a home invasion and shooting over the weekend.
Hoke County sheriff's deputies were called to a home on North Hilltop Road around 1:25 a.m. on Saturday, where they found James Crump, 58, shot in the knee.
Crump was taken to Scotland Memorial Hospital for treatment, authorities said. He was later transferred to a Charlotte hospital.
The extent of his injuries was unclear.
According to investigators, Crump told detectives that two men wielding a double-barreled shotgun kicked in his door and shot him.
Investigators were unsure if anything was taken from Crump's home "due to the victim's status."
Authorities only had a vague description of one of the suspects.
Anyone with information about the crime should contact the Hoke County Sheriff's Office at 919-875-5111.
