2 people shot by pellet gun in Kernersville area, police say

KERNERSVILLE, N.C. -- Authorities are investigating a string of pellet gun shootings in the Kernersville area.

The first incident happened Monday afternoon in the 4100 block of Old Hollow Road in Walkertown, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.

A man was riding his bicycle when he was shot in buttocks by a pellet gun. The man described the suspect's vehicle as a red Honda.

A similar incident happened about 13 minutes later off of Highway 66 when a woman was standing on her mother's front porch and she was shot in the shoulder. She also described the suspect's vehicle as a red Honda.

“I heard a big bang. It sounded like a firecracker,” said Beverly Glass. "Then I could feel the blood dripping down my back and I realized that I have been shot.”

The pellet hit Glass in the upper back shoulder. She says the shooter fired from a car near her mother’s home on Glenn Street.

“I was over at my mother’s house that had passed away about a year and a half ago. Removing some of the last remaining things out of her home,” Glass explained.

She says she was able to get a good look at the car.

“I saw to the left to me, I saw the red car driving and it was actually kind of driving slow,” Glass said. "I have posted this on my Facebook and have had several people contact me and say the same thing has happened to them.”

Kernersville police and the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office are tracking down leads.
