WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A man is dead, two others were injured and a woman is in custody after a shooting in Winston-Salem, according to Winston-Salem police.

At 6:19 p.m., officers responded to a shots fired call on the 1300 block of Peachtree Street.

Shortly after arriving, officers were called to the Hanes Mall Boulevard exit ramp on Interstate 40.

Arriving officers found a car on the side of the road and two men — 22-year-old Ajian Lynell Jones, of Winston-Salem, and Andres Harris, 19 — suffering from gunshot wounds in the car.

EMS brought both men to a hospital.

Investigators learned a third gunshot victim, Charvez Brown, 25, of Winston-Salem, arrived at a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police believe he was involved in the same incident.

Officers believe Brown agreed to meet up with Danielle Charlette Miller on the 1300 block of Peachtree Street to sell her a controlled substance, but when he arrived, he was confronted by Harris and Jones.

Harris and Jones tried to rob Brown, and gunfire erupted, leaving all three men injured.

Brown reportedly went back to his home at 106 Green Point Drive before going to the hospital.

Miller, Harris and Jones left in a vehicle, but, after taking damage during the gunfire, the car stopped on I-40 west near Hanes Mall Boulevard.

When a passerby stopped to help, they saw the gunshot victim and called 911.

Jones died at the hospital.

Harris's injuries were later determined to be non-life-threatening.

Harris has been charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a stolen firearm and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. Harris is being held under a $75,000 bond.

More charges may be filed.

Police say this was an isolated incident, and officers are not looking for any other suspects.
