Sheriff’s office seeks info in Wednesday shooting

BLAIRS, Va. – The Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help in solving a shooting.

Investigators are hoping someone saw the vehicle that fled the site of an early morning shooting. Deputies responded to a shots fired call in the 1000 block of Lawless Creek Road in Blairs about 1:45 Wednesday morning.

When deputies arrived, they found a man with a gunshot wound, an unoccupied car and a mobile home that had been shot. There were people inside the mobile home, but no one inside was hurt.

Deputies say the suspects fled before authorities arrived on the scene.

The man who’d been shot was airlifted to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries described by police as non-life threatening. His name was not released.
