CORNELIUS, N.C. — Residents said four gunshots rattled their usually quiet Cornelius neighborhood Saturday morning.

Police said 16-year-old Greyson Ferrell was holding a gun and wearing a bulletproof vest when officers approached his home on Coachman’s Trace.

WSOC spoke to a former classmate of Ferrell Sunday. He said they attended Hough High School together last year. The classmate lives in the same neighborhood as Ferrell.

“I saw the house that it happened at, and I knew he lived there and I was wondering if he had anything to do with it,” he said.
