WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A person was shot and injured on Wednesday afternoon in Winston-Salem, according to police officers on the scene.

The shooting happened on South Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

The victim told police he was outside of a local business and asked a person, the suspect in the shooting, for change for a $100 bill.

The two engaged in some sort of gambling and the suspect lost the game.

The victim left the area in a vehicle and the suspect followed him.

At some point, the suspect pulled up next to the vehicle that the victim was in and pulled out a gun.

The victim tried to get away and at some point the suspect fired the gun, striking the vehicle three times.

One of the rounds penetrated the victim’s vehicle and struck him in the ankle. The victim’s injuries were non-life-threatening.

Police do not have anyone in custody.
