WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A man was shot in the arm after six men broke into his home early Monday morning in Winston-Salem.

One of the suspects shot the man in the arm and continued to strike both victims before fleeing the scene.

The man was transported to the hospital with  non-life threatening injuries. The woman was not severely injured.

The suspects are described as six black males, wearing orange and black hoods.

    I agree! when the Sheriff thinks he needed to arm all of his Dept. with high powered rifles that sounds like to me crime has gotton out of hand

    we just need more gun backs to make sure the citizenry isnt armed and there arent any non functioning firearms are out on the streets. thats a great use of resources – special thanks to our leo’s for keeping us safe from “six black males, wearing orange and black hoods”

    Honestly, I think people need to put pressure on the pd to stop this now. Where are all the random patrols? What are they doing to stop/prevent this?

    the fact is law enforcement barely does ANYTHING to prevent crimes. they are not our personal security guards – they basically push paperwork to process criminal activity AFTER it occurs. thats not a bash on the leo’s out there – its just the truth. you want to be safe, train and become self reliant – because you cant depend on anyone else to keep you safe.

    its not smart to promote or to live in a police state anyway – thats why support 2a legislation is so important. its up to us to protect ourselves.

    the old cliche “when seconds count – police are minutes away” may sound corny but its 100 percent true.
