— Investigators in Vance County were trying to determine Sunday what led to a shooting in Henderson.

Sheriff Peter White said deputies found Trevon Charlton when they answered a call about a shooting at 377 Lynnbank Estates on Saturday evening. Charlton initially was believe to be dead, but paramedics were able to revive him en route to Maria Parham Hospital. He was transferred to Duke University Hospital, where officials Sunday declined to reveal his condition.

The shooting was not random, White said, but the motive was unclear.

Authorities began a search with dogs for suspects who had fled the scene, but later determined they had fled in a black Honda. An alert for that car went out over police radios, officials said.

White said deputies were uncertain about Charlton’s age, but said he was 26 to 28 years old.

Sheriff’s deputies and the State Bureau of Investigation were looking for clues.
