1 shot, seriously injured in High Point; 1 suspect in custody, at least 1 other suspect sought

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Police are still looking for at least one more suspect connected to a shooting in the area of E. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. and S. Scientific St. Monday evening.

The incident started around 5:20 p.m. when people inside four vehicles started shooting at each other, according to Lt. Curtis Cheeks III, with High Point police.

One of the people involved in the shooting is in serious condition at Moses Cone Hospital with a gunshot wound to his head. Police say he was taken to Wesley Long Hospital hospital by private vehicle in one of the SUV's involved in the shooting and later transferred to Cone. Police are currently questioning at least one occupant of that SUV.

One suspect is already in custody, but no charges have been filed yet.

Cheeks confirmed this shooting is part of a trend of "violent individuals targeting each other" in High Point. He said the incident is not believed to be random.

A witness who did not want to be identified told FOX8, “I was very afraid. Honestly, I didn’t know what to think because I was just out getting my mail and then all of a sudden I hear so many shots like right behind me. The first thing I thought to do was run, my mind went blank.”

At least one home in the area was hit by gunfire. Police say a woman's arm was grazed either by a bullet or shattered glass. She was not involved in the shooting and was treated for minor injuries.
