WINDSOR – The victim of a Sunday afternoon shooting here is recovering after undergoing surgery.

Windsor Police Chief Todd Lane said that 22-year-old Keaon Matthew Bond was shot three times in the torso by two unidentified males.

Bond was sitting in his vehicle, parked outside of his residence at 1544 South King Street at around 12:30 pm, when two slender males wearing masks approached the vehicle, according to Lane. The suspects unsuccessfully attempted to open the vehicle doors, and then shot into the vehicle striking the victim three times. The suspects left the scene on foot.

Bond was initially transported to Bertie Vidant Hospital in Windsor and then flown to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville where he underwent surgery.

“We were able to interview Mr. Bond on Tuesday, but we still do not have a lot of information to go on at this time in our attempt to identify the two suspects,” Lane told the Roanoke-Chowan News-Herald on Wednesday.

Windsor Police Officers Jessie Mizelle and Officer Naomi Wiggins were the first to arrive on the scene of the shooting. Assistance was requested from the Ahoskie Police Department’s K-9 unit. Ahoskie Officer Clifton Whitby responded and conducted a track which led to a street not far from the area where Bond was shot

Meanwhile, Lane said witnesses reported seeing a small white vehicle parked at the location prior to the shooting and leaving at a high rate of speed afterwards.

Windsor Police Detective Sergeant Justin Jackson is the lead investigator in this case. Anyone with information that could help solve this case is asked to call Sgt. Jackson 252-325-4265.
