On Monday, July 3, at 4:07 P.M., the Statesville Police Department received a 911 call regarding a person who had been shot and was lying in the roadway suffering from a gunshot wound.
Officers responded to 352 N. Tradd Street in Statesville and discovered Brandis Teon Imes, a 43-year-old resident of Statesville, lying a driveway with a gunshot wound to the leg.
