WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — Four suspects were charged after breaking into a Winston-Salem apartment, on Wednesday afternoon, according to a news release from Winston-Salem police.

Reginald Williams, Leroy Streeter, Tamir Best and Allen Little are each charged with breaking and entering with intent to terrorize. Little is additionally charged with possession of a stolen firearm.

At 12:25 p.m., officers were called to 732 Scholastic Court on a report of a shooting.

When officers arrived, they were told four possible suspects were leaving the area in a car. Officers were able to find the car and stopped it, taking the four suspects into custody.

Officers later learned from a woman who lived in an apartment at the complex that three men came into her apartment and one had a gun.

The woman went to her boyfriend in the back bedroom of the apartment.

The boyfriend shot at the suspects in self-defense, according to the release.

The suspects then ran out of the apartment. Two ran out of the front door and one jumped off the third-floor balcony. The suspect who jumped off the balcony sustained minor injuries and is currently receiving medical treatment at a local medical facility.

No other injuries were reported.

The gun used during the crime was reported stolen from Greensboro.
