Authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating a vehicle and suspect involved in a drive-by shooting on Memorial Day, Virginia State Police report.

It was at about 2 a.m. May 25 when officers from the state police, Halifax County Sheriff’s Office and South Boston Police Department responded to a call on Sinai Road reporting shots fired from a vehicle, according to Corinne N. Geller, a Virginia State Police spokesperson, who emailed a news release late Thursday evening.

Arriving officers discovered that a black 1999 BMW had crashed against an embankment off the right side of the road. The BMW had been shot several times, Geller reported.

The driver, a 20-year-old South Boston man, was found inside suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital for treatment of the injury that Geller reported was not life-threatening. He has since been released.

Police are now searching for a gray four-door sedan they report pulled up alongside the BMW when the shooting occurred.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Virginia State Police at 434-352-7128 or email
