GREENSBORO, N.C. — One person is in critical condition after a shooting on Huffman Street, right by North Carolina A&T, just before noon.

Greensboro police tell FOX8 they are looking for a newer-model silver Nissan Altima with 30-day tags.

They say the car was seen driving away from the scene right after the shooting.

“Bop, bop, bop, bop. It was probably about 12 shots,” Gun Young said.

The rapid gunfire woke him up from a nap.

“I’m not from here. I’m not used to this,” Young said. “I was just thinking about getting on the ground. “When I opened the door, I saw people running down the street. They were like, ‘Somebody got shot up the street.'”

Young and his family moved from New Jersey just two years ago.

Now, he’s planning on leaving Huffman Street to keep his family safe.

“This is not the answer. This is not the way to go,” Young said. “I’m from the streets but you grow up sometimes. Things happen, but we’re killing each other for no apparent reason.”

He hopes police will continue to protect them but realizes there’s only so much they can do.

“I know the cops have their job to do and I appreciate that,” he said. “This is not the way to go. To have guns and shooting people, I don’t think that’s cool.”

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