ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (WTVD) -- Rocky Mount Police are investigating after a man was found shot in a parking lot.

Police responded to calls about a shooting in the 1200 block of North Wesleyan Boulevard just after 10:30 p.m. When officers arrived, they were flagged down by a person who led them to Jonathan Branch, 24, who grazed his knee and appeared to be under the influence of narcotics, police said.
