COLERAIN – Bertie County Sheriff Greg Atkins said an investigation continues into a Sunday morning shooting that has left one dead and one injured.

Nathaniel Moody, 36, was shot and killed and his brother, Tyrone Moody, 35, was injured after being shot in the parking lot of a private club at 108 Lua Lane in Colerain, according to Sheriff Atkins.

The sheriff reported the incident occurred at approximately 3 a.m. Sunday. The two men were shot by a person who is known to investigators.

“We know who the shooter is,” Sheriff Atkins said. “He hasn’t been arrested and we are investigating the circumstances around the shooting.”

The sheriff said the shooter was still at the scene when officers arrived and investigators have taken a statement. He said an altercation apparently led to the shooting.

An autopsy was conducted on Nathaniel Moody Monday afternoon, but results had not been released. Tyrone Moody was in Pitt Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

The sheriff said investigation will continue as witnesses are interviewed and the autopsy results come in.
