Last Tuesday officers responded to Caldwell Memorial Hospital after receiving a call stating that a shooting victim was dropped off at the Emergency Room. The victim, a 24-year-old Hickory man, suffered two gunshot wounds to his torso. The man reported that earlier in the morning he and his girlfriend were at a residence of an acquaintance and a group of individuals assaulted him and his girlfriend.
The victim added that several of the individuals placed him and his girlfriend into a vehicle and transported them to another location where he and his girlfriend were placed on the ground. The individuals allegedly fired multiple shots at the victims. The man was hit with gunfire but his girlfriend was not. The man was later flown to Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem for additional treatment.
The victim’s girlfriend corroborated his account of the events. Further investigation and the discovery of items corroborated the victim’s statements. Harris, Shaw, and Perry were all incarcerated in the Caldwell County Detention Center under $100,000 secured bond apiece. They were all scheduled to appear in District Court today (November 4) in Lenoir.
