CHOWAN COUNTY, N.C. – The Chowan County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man wanted for questioning in three separate attempted murder cases.

There was also an additional incident that injured one victim. The suspect is wanted for one count of attempted murder.

Officials say the man goes by the name “Savage” and has a tattoo of LBM and a five point star on his face. He also possible has the number 12 tattooed on his face and is missing a front tooth.
