Man shot inside Lexington apartment dies
LEXINGTON, N.C. — A 25-year-old man has died after he was shot inside a Lexington apartment. It’s the third shooting in three days within just a mile.
Police found Johnathan White shot inside a home at 51 Jamaica Drive on Monday around 12:50 p.m.
He was flown to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in critical condition where he later died.
Police say White lived in High Point. FOX8 talked to several neighbors in Eastview Terrace who say they often saw White in their neighborhood.
One man said he’d chatted with White less than an hour before the shooting, but he said he didn’t know why White was there.
White was scheduled to appear in court in Davidson County on April 24 on charges including trafficking opium or heroin, possession of marijuana, making threatening phone calls and disclosure of private images.
Lexington police did not return FOX8’s phone calls asking a possible motive for the shooting or why White was in the home on Jamaica Drive.
Police are still looking for a suspect or suspects last seen leaving the neighborhood in a white four-door sedan with tinted windows, driving north on Main Street.
Police have not said whether this shooting is connected to two others nearby that happened Saturday night. The first occurred in the street on Jamaica Drive about 10 p.m. and the second a short time later on Tussey Street. Both of those victims are expected to recover.
