GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — Police are investigating three separate shootings that happened in quick succession overnight.
Greensboro police say that they were first called to West Meadowview Road just after 11 p.m. for a shooting. They located a person who had been shot and they were taken to the hospital. According to police, they’re stable.
Then police say they were called to the 3200 block of Yanceyville Street just before 12:30 a.m. On the scene, police located someone who had been shot. They describe his injury as “serious” but say he was conscious when they arrived. He was taken to the hospital.
Just before 2 a.m. police were called to the 1900 block of Rayston Drive about a shooting. They found a man who had been shot multiple times. He was taken to the hospital and is stable, however.
One of the bullets struck a homeowner’s window, ripping through the couch, wall and cabinet.
“God protected me because I could have been sitting right there on the couch, but he sees fit not to let anything happen to me,” said the man, who did not wish to be identified.
Weekly crime reports show the number of aggravated assaults involving guns is up to 86% this year, compared to the same time period in 2021.
“They should stay away. Take it on the other side of town where you want to go but not here. Everyone in this neighborhood is quiet, loves one another, takes care of one another. Don’t bring your junk to this neighborhood. Take it somewhere else,” the homeowner said.
Police have not released any additional details about these shootings.
