The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting death which occurred late Friday night in the 1100 block of Elm Street in Weldon.

Chief Deputy Scott Hall said this afternoon investigators have a few leads and are working on the information they have thus far.

He said investigators received information while they were en route to the scene that a gunshot victim, identified as 37-year-old Anthony Jerod Harris of Weldon, had arrived at Vidant North.

In a statement this afternoon Hall said Harris was later pronounced deceased.

The sheriff’s office initially responded to a report of multiple shots being fired in the area around 10 p.m. The shooting occurred outside.

It was minutes later they learned the victim had arrived at the hospital by private vehicle.
