Updated: Oct 21, 2020

Around 10:30 PM Saturday October 17th RMPD was dispatched to a shooting on Boyd Ct in Rocky Mount.


Fighting Crime advised citizens on the supporters platform that a shooting had just occurred.


When RMPD arrived they found that a woman was shot in the chest at 130 Boyd Ct.


RMPD started investigating and found shell casings in the home.

Investigations lead them to 114 Boyd Ct where they arrested JOHNNIE LAMONT PITTMAN 37 yrs of age.


PITTMAN has been charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill or Inflict Serious Injury.


No word on the condition of the victim in this case.


Fighting Crime found court records that Pittman had been charged several times in the past with pointing a gun, stalking and communicating threats against a female in the past. In all of those cases the charges were dropped.


Pittman is in the Nash County jail awaiting his first appearance on Tuesday 10/20/2020


RMPD did great work investigating this case.
