— A 16-year-old Rocky Mount boy was shot around midnight Sunday by three unidentified men asking him about drugs, police said Monday.

Damian Taylor said that three men approached him at Hargrove and Daughtridge streets and asked him where they could buy drugs. When Taylor said he didn't know, one of the men shot him with a sawed-off shotgun, Taylor told police.

Police said Taylor suffered minor injuries from pellets and was treated at a local hospital and released.

No arrests have been in the shooting.
