GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A woman has been charged with murder after a 16-year-old girl was shot in Greensboro Monday evening.

Channay Ericka Morehead, 27, of Greensboro, is charged with first-degree murder.

Officers went to 4411 Baker Ave. at 9:08 p.m. after a report of a shooting. Upon arrival, police located Sateria Zoe Fleming, a Western Guilford High School student, suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

The girl's father told FOX8 Tuesday night that she was shot in the back of the head and placed on life-support at the hospital. He said she was declared brain dead and thus legally dead.

On Wednesday, the family decided to take her off life-support.

Friends and people who live near the shooting held a vigil Wednesday night.

“She was very genuine, that's what I appreciated about her and that's what connected me to her,” said Jayden Joyce, one of Fleming’s classmates.

“She was always uplifting, no matter what the situation was,” said Tommi Pierson, a former Western Guilford High School student.

Greensboro police are investigating the shooting as a homicide.

A traffic stop at Battleground Village shopping center that led to an officer-involved shooting near a busy Greensboro intersection Tuesday afternoon is related to the shooting on Baker Avenue.

It happened around 3:45 p.m. in the area of Battleground Avenue and Edney Ridge Road, which is near the intersection of Battleground Avenue and Pisgah Church Road.

Police say Morehead, Courtney Tyreek Baskins and Hajji Dequan Johnson were in the vehicle. Morehead stayed with the vehicle and was taken into custody, while Baskins and Johnson ran.

Greensboro police Cpl. Dwayne Diaz caught up to Baskins on the other side of Battleground Avenue. While Diaz was trying to arrest him, Baskins raised a handgun from his waist area, which resulted in the officer firing several rounds at the suspect, striking Baskins at least once.

Baskins is under police guard at a local hospital and is listed in stable condition.

Johnson was arrested after a brief chase.

Baskins, 22, of High Point, is charged with felony assault on a law enforcement official and remains a person of interest in the homicide.

Johnson, 20, of Greensboro, is charged with carrying a concealed weapon and resisting a public officer. Police do not believe he was involved in the Baker Avenue shooting.

“I respect fact that they were quick, but at the end of the day it doesn't change it because Zoe is not going to come back,” said Jazlyn Bell, another one of the victim's classmates.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (336) 373-1000.
