One dead, one injured in Greensboro shooting

GREENSBORO, N.C. — One man is dead and his brother is injured after a shooting in Greensboro early Friday morning.

The suspected shooter is still on the run.

Clarence Eugene Toran Jr., 24, who lived at 3315 Trent Street, was found dead of a gunshot wound at the scene. Police say he was shot more than once by someone who likely knew him.

His brother, Terence Allen Toran, 22, was also shot. Terence was transported to the hospital with injuries, but is expected to live.

Police say the three involved in the shooting knew each other, but did not all live in the complex.

    Well, at least the hoodies didn’t crash into a hospital emergency room this time. Oh by the way, did GSO PD make any arrests in the drive thru ER incident the other night? Would have been a crime NOT to apprehend the subject in such an enclosed and guarded environment with 24-hour police presence on the premises, but maybe they would have been sued for “racial discrimination” had they done so. Besides, they have more important things to do, like chasing phantom right-wing extremist groups like “sovereign citizens”, blocking city streets for weekly running events, and so-on.

    They didnt make any arrests because they are too busy sitting in their usual hiding spots on Wendover giving speeding tickets to the producers of society, ya know, just serving and protecting….

    • Dick Tracy

      Brad, giving tickets to speeding drivers is a good thing because in reality, speeding can and does kill people. By all appearances, it seems likely that you were recently caught for speeding and got a ticket or you are just stupid and ignorant. Doesn’t really matter which is true I suppose…

    I thought the “retiring” police chief said Greensboro was safe. I guess this is a definition of safe that I am previously unaware of.

    • Dick Tracy

      Your right Faith but we all should remember that police chiefs have mastered the art of lying to the public in the most self-serving ways, just like all politicians. That is why Greensboro should eliminate the position and just create a panel of senior GPD officers to run the department. That will save money in the long run and eliminate the merry-go-round circus that happens every time a chief leaves for another department. Are you listening city council?

      @ FAITHC – I “guess” you “guessed” right about being “unaware” about the situation ! Funny, you seem to be “unaware” about a lot of things these days ! Think most on here will agree ……

        Iama Retiree – Here you are again, trying to get FaithC’s attention. It is like watching a grade school boy who has a crush on one of his classmates. You need to get out more and find a live person to talk to.

    Welcome to ‘Browns-Boro’….where dreams of reliving your favorite movie ‘Boyz-N-Da-Hood’ is a reality!

  • Thetruth

    It seems anywhere you have a bunch of Hoodrats who can’t keep their Women,Drugs and money in check you have problems!!! Welcome to G-Hood!!

  • Bill W

    Greensboro has not been safe in years, can’t see it getting any better any time soon. The town council seems to ignore their high crime rate.

  • Adam Ziarnik

    I’m still waiting for you folks to give me solid examples of comparable sized American cities that are substantially “safer” (drastically lower violent crime rate) than Greensboro…

  • Trav261

    Ha, ha! All of these “G Hood” and the like comments are stupid. I mean, I’ve tried to no avail to reason with y’all. But, ya know, I’m done! If pretending like ALL of Greensboro is so terrible makes you feel good, so be it. I’ll just keep living peacefully in reality!

    • Adam Ziarnik

      I can pretty much predict the comments on any story involving violent crime in Greensboro. It’s always FaithC decrying “Just another day in Greensboro” and others chiming in about the “G-Hood” and a few racist comments blaming blacks for all the city’s problems, as if the color of one’s skin is the source of the problem.

  • Ken

    After living in Greensboro for 35 years before moving out to Arizona in 2007, it is clear, after reading most of the racist comments here, that my decision to leave was the right one. Some of you are just too pathetic for words and you parade around here like no other race commits horrible crimes in Greensboro. Take off those little black and white glasses before you walk in to a wall.

  • Tear Drop

    These comments are hilarious! I dont care if your green, orange or blue! Crime is outrageous in the city and just because it all happens in the ghetto does not mean its blacks causing all the problems. White folks live in the ghetto too, so hush up about the race thing. Yes, more likely to happen in a black neighborhood, aka ghetto, but this stuff happens all over in the city.

  • ...

    As a family member of the both victims these comments are sickening. Its not “just another night in the ‘hood’ as you put it, Bo Diddley. These crimes happen to all races not just blacks. Get a clue.

  • Zack

    Ha! Ha! some of you need to get your head out of the Kool-aid . FACT> listen to Greensboro Police scanner one week. yes all races do crimes in our city but it’s 80% “Black Males” every night 7 days a week. and before you get on me for telling the truth check it out for yourself and you will see what i mean. i know some of you don’t want to hear it but there is nothing racist about telling the truth!!

  • L

    You people always talking about Hood, was it in the Hood when the “white” Guy killed 2 adults and 4 children, it’s not the area it is the person….dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, Dumb !!!

    • Tear Drop

      Always trying to justify crime by pointing out another crime by another race….well guess what L, whites commit major crime every now and again, but its the black crime that is done over and over and over and therefore are more than 70% of our prison population! I hate racists, but its fact…so go ahead and blame the court system because I am sure thats whats next when you make an excuse as to why so high % in prison, but its fine…Dont be upset about the crime, but please reach out to your local police reports and you will find the truth and blame your fellow hoodrat.

  • tired of racist

    You don’t see blacks going to prestigious schools and going postal but yet you are racist pigs are quick to point out problems in Greensboro. Whites have killed more than blacks have now look that fact up

    • bigtrav261

      Yeah, that guy in Texas who killed six if his family members, is white. So was the woman in Pleasant Garden who killed her two sons, niece and nephew, son’s girlfriend, and then herself. But, these dummies won’t listen to you. Personally, I’m done with these yahoos.

  • adrienne

    These individuals are great people.In the wrong place at the wrong time. Someones father, brother, son, gransdon nephew, friend……is dead. Please show some class and respect.

  • Princess

    The deceased and the injured are my blood relatives. I’ve spent the last year and a half with the deceased and he was on his way to doing great things with his life. Maybe some of you should get off your behinds and go mentor, teach/tutor, help feed/provide shelter for, coach our youth while they are still young enough to grow into upstanding citizens. And before you infer that these young men came from broken homes, they didn’t. They were raised by two parents who chose careers in the military and medical field, two of the most selfless professions a person could chose. This incident was a tragedy. Far too often kids that would grow to be upstanding citizens are exposed to the societal ills that some of you are too selfish to care to do your part to address. The saying is it takes a village and it doesn’t matter if that village is made up of blacks or whites.

    • ...

      Exactly. But there are those who see things and assume the worst which is why some of the opinions of some of these people are sickening. Too many want to talk about the issues but don’t offer to help change things.

    • Mo

      Princess, I agree. People are always so quick to judge. I am so heartbroken over this incident. I knew all three of the people involved in the incident. They were my neighbors for over a year, and I remember them all being very good friends. They used to keep me up at night with their big mouths right below my window (small attempt at humor, here). I remember seeing them all hanging out just two doors down whenever I left the house. This is so sad. My heart goes out to CT and his family, and I don’t understand why Brandon would attack his close friends. These guys were inseparable at one point. I don’t understand what happened?
