Davis confirmed town police are familiar with Faison, who has a February 22 court date for running from officers late last month after a vehicle he was a passenger in was stopped for speeding.

At this point the police department is not discussing motive in the shooting, Davis said.

Faison, who faces a charge of attempted murder, tends to frequent the Weldon and Murfreesboro areas and had a past address in Northampton County.

The shooting occurred at the corner of Second Street and Washington Avenue around 1:45 Sunday morning.

The victim was shot multiple times in the torso and hand and had been attending a birthday party at an establishment in the area of Second Street and Washington Avenue, police said.

The victim remains in critical condition, Davis said in the statement.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the police department at 252-536-3136 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
