GREENE COUNTY -

The Greene County Sheriff is looking for two shooting suspects who he said shot a man inside a home off of Highway 13.

Sheriff Lemmie Smith said Tuesday night at around 8:48, a man identified as Ricardo Martinez, 33, was shot inside a home on Davis Road near Snow Hill.  The sheriff said two suspects came in the home, shot the victim, and then left the scene.  A 15-year-old and 6-year-old were inside the home at the time; neither were injured.  Martinez was watching his girlfriend's child and another child who is not related.

Smith said the victim was stable and transported to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.  Martinez is not listed in the public registry at the hospital. 

There's no word on the motive for the shooting.
