HILLSVILLE — Carroll Sheriff Warren Manning said Wednesday that his deputies continue to investigate a Tuesday incident that left a man at 71 Windmill Road with a gunshot wound.
Manning said Wednesday that it was too early to draw any conclusions in this case, he told The Gazette.
While a report came in that an intruder was involved, deputies continue to look at other possibilities, too, the sheriff said.
No arrest had been made as of press time Wednesday, but Manning stressed that there wasn’t a general threat to the neighborhood from a suspect entering homes and shooting people.
“We’re still looking at every angle to make sure we get this cleared up and there’s no doubt about it,” he said.
Family members said the victim was in critical condition at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Wednesday.
Manning said investigators have to wait until doctors say that the victim is able to talk in order to find out more information about what happened.
