Man shot in home by intruders claiming to be Greensboro Police

GREENSBORO, N.C. — A man was shot in his home by three men claiming to be Greensboro Police early Friday morning.

Wayne Richardson says he’s lucky to be alive.

Richardson was asleep with his 5-year-old son in their mobile home on Sue Ellen Court in Greensboro around 2:20 a.m. when he heard his wife screaming.

He went to check on the commotion and discovered that three men claiming to be Greensboro Police had kicked in the door of the home.

One of them pointed a gun at Richardson and fired. The bullet only grazed the victim’s head and he was treated and released for minor injuries.

The first suspect was described as a black male, between the ages of 18-25, 5’7″, 120 pounds with short hair. The second suspect is described as a black male, 5’5″, 120 pounds, who was wearing dark clothing and a red bandana covering his face.

The victims were not able to describe the third suspect.

The victims stated they did not see any identification on them that would indicate they were the police officers.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office at 641-5963 or Crime Stoppers at 373-1000.
