Search for murder suspect continues

LAGRANGE -- The Lenoir County Sheriff's Department was still looking for a murder suspect Saturday night.

Witnesses identified Pablo Baltazar as the shooter in the Thursday night shooting of Saul Sanchez Alonzo at Dooley's Bar in LaGrange. Alonzo died at Lenoir Memorial Hospital. Witnesses told investigators that there was no argument prior to the shooting.

Another gunshot victim, whose name was being withheld until his family could be notified, was listed in critical condition at Wayne Memorial Hospital on Saturday.

Investigators say they don't know what provoked the shooting. They say Baltazar should be considered armed and dangerous.
