The Statesville Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred Monday afternoon.
The SPD received a 911 call at 4:07 p.m. Monday regarding a person who had been shot and was lying in the road in the 300 block of North Tradd Street, police said in a news release.
Officers responded to the scene at 352 North Tradd Street and found Brandis Teon Imes, a 43-year-old resident of Statesville, lying in the driveway with a gunshot wound to the leg, according to the news release.
The officers administered first aid to Imes, who was transported to Atrium Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem by Iredell County EMS for further treatment.
The SPD Violent Crimes Unit responded to the scene and initiated an investigation into the incident.
