GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) – A suspect was arrested, and a man is in the hospital following a shooting in Greensboro on Saturday, according to a Greensboro Police Department news release.

At 4:57 p.m., police responded to Adams Farm Parkway when they were told about a shooting at the Advenir at Adams Farm apartment complex. 

“I’ve never heard anything like it,” said Joshua Patrick, who lives at the complex and called 911. “I’ve been here for about a year and it’s not like it’s a bad neighborhood or anything.” 

Patrick didn’t realize it was gunshots until he heard four in a row.

“Around five o’clock I was in my apartment getting ready to leave and I heard two shots,” he said. “There was about five police cars out here and the crime scene investigator van.” 

Arriving officers found a man who had been shot. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Antron Dewayne Rice, 26, was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, firearm by a felon and assault inflicting serious injury.

“Hopefully not something I’ll have to experience too much more,” Patrick said. 

The investigation is ongoing.
