Lambert said the subject who went to ACH was later transferred to USA Medical Center for surgery, and is in stable condition.

“The other two — one was shot in the head and one was shot in the leg,” he said. “The one that was shot in the head went to USA. Both were treated for non-life threatening injuries.”

Lambert said all three said they were outside of the residence when a vehicle pulled up.

“Two unidentified subjects came out and told the three subjects to give them all of their money,” Lambert said. “They told them they didn’t have any. The suspect then fire shots, striking them and fled the area.”

Lambert didn’t release the names of the subjects as the case is still under investigation.

Those with any information in regard to this case call the sheriff’s office at 251-368-4779, 251-867-0304 or the crime tip hotline at 251-809-2154.
