Lawrence Wall was rushed by ambulance to Wayne Memorial Hospital. His condition was not immediately known.
Wall told police that he was standing in the street at about 11:15 p.m., when a man walked up from Carolina Street and yelled at him to leave someone else alone. The suspect then swung a baseball bat at Wall and shot him in the left leg, the report said.
The suspect was described only as black and he wore a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
The body of a 45-year-old woman was found before dawn today in her home, according to a Goldsboro police report. The victim was identified as Phyllis Pemberton Warren of 517 Hickory St. The victim's husband, Willie N. Warren, said that he discovered her unresponsive at about 5 a.m. She was pronounced dead by rescue personnel.
A man heard noises before dawn today in his home in the 100 block of Country View Drive and found an intruder inside, Goldsboro police reported.

A kitchen window screen had about $50 in damages from the burglary, the report said.
Engelbert Gutierrez Villalobos, 27, of Country View Drive, was arrested, the report said. Charges are pending.
About $3,000 in damages was reported Saturday from a kitchen fire at 1006 S. Andrews Ave., the Goldsboro Fire Department reported.
Thirteen firefighters answered the 10:42 a.m. call with three engines, a ladder and a command car and found light smoke through the house. Lt. Willie Lee said the stove, floor, carpet and a doorway were damaged.
The home, valued at $80,000, is owned by Dorothy Cooper. Contents were valued at $50,000, the report said.
Unattended cooking was blamed for a kitchen fire that caused about $15,000 in damages to a home at 1273 Rosewood Road, a fire official said Friday.
Oakland Fire Chief Jack Howell credited an unidentified resident with saving most of the one-floor brick home that was owned by Shirley Martin and valued at about $180,000.
"She used good thinking to throw water on the cabinets," Howell said. "That slowed the fire and smothered it. It could have been a lot worse if she had not thought to do that. Most people don't think to do that."
Howell said smoke and flames were not visible from the outside but when the door was opened, he said there was smoke.
Oakland, Rosewood and Little River volunteers answered the 1:30 p.m. call. They needed about an hour to put out the fire, investigate the cause and finish salvage work.
