UPDATE: Officials have evacuated the College of Albemarle’s Elizabeth City campus as they search for the suspect, per WTKR-TV.
Officials say that the College of Albemarle’s Elizabeth City campus and the Sentara Albemarle Medical Center have been placed on lockdown Wednesday afternoon.
The lockdowns come as police search for an “armed and dangerous” suspect in the area. 22-year-old Caprie Anthony Paige is wanted in connection to a Sept. 2 shooting. He is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill, shooting into an occupied vehicle and damage to person property.
Police say the search was predicated by a tip they received that Paige may be in a nearby Traveller’s Inn.
