Officers responding to a shooting call around 9:15 p.m. found three black males with gunshot wounds at the Midlake Mobile Home Park on Midlakes Lane off U.S. Highway 64. 

One of the men was pronounced dead at the scene and the other two were transported to Vidant Edgecome Hospital in Tarboro, police said. Authorities also confirmed that one of the men taken to the hospital was the alleged shooter.
