Man shot, killed outside Four Seasons mall in Greensboro identified

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The man who was shot and killed outside the entrance of JCPenney at the Four Seasons Town Centre Thursday afternoon has been identified.

The man, identified as 34-year-old Sherrod Maurice Crum, was taken to the hospital but died from the gunshot wounds.

Police responded to the call at 2:16 p.m. There was a loud argument outside the JCPenney entrance and the victim was shot more than once. This is the second homicide in the JCPenney parking lot this year.

Greensboro police said there are two persons of interest who were in the immediate vicinity of the shooting at the time. Police also said they have not ruled out the possible involvement of a gold-colored sedan.

On February 18, Westley Tyler Tugman, 33, of Lenoir, was shot and killed in almost the same spot by a man who was trying to rob him. Tugman was there shopping with his niece. He was an innocent victim.

Both homicides are unsolved.
