A 53-year-old North Virginia Street man was shot Wednesday afternoon, Goldsboro police said. Wayne Memorial Hospital spokespeople said Glenwood Earl Moses, 53, of North Virginia Street was still in the hospital, in stable condition on Thursday morning. Moses and witness Beverly Moore told Officer C.A. Melvin that a black male entered Moses' home and a fight ensued.
