Gunshot wounds Stallings man

A Stallings man was hospitalized after being shot in the neck inside his home Monday night, police said.

Steve Wayne Hargett, 45, was found with a single gunshot in the neck in the den-kitchen area of his home on Lake Drive in the Fairfield Plantation subdivision off Stevens Mill Road, Stallings Police Chief Larke Plyler said. No suspects have been identified.

The shooting was reported around 9:30 p.m. Monday. Hargett's wife and daughter were home but were asleep in their bedrooms, Plyler said.

There were no signs of forced entry or a struggle. Police are pursuing leads and trying to determine a motive in the shooting. Plyler said it wasn't clear whether the shooting was random.

Hargett was sent to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. He was in stable condition today, Plyler said.

Neighbors told police they saw a late-model, full-size Chevrolet pickup truck dark in color seen leaving with its headlights off.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Stallings Police Department at 704-821-0301 or Union County Crime Stoppers at 704-283-5600.
