WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — A person has died after an early morning shooting in downtown Winston-Salem.
According to police, they began getting calls about a shooting on Burke Street and a large fight just after 2 a.m. Monday.
After the fight, multiple shots were fired, and Quante Donnell Wilder, 35, of Winston-Salem, was killed.
Nehemiah Chandler, 19, of Winston-Salem, was identified as a suspect. He was taken into custody and charged with murder. He is in the Forsyth County Detention Center with no bond.
Units were outside of Gatsby’s Pub gathering evidence, though they say it doesn’t seem anything happened inside of the business.
On Monday, Gatsby’s Pub shared a post on Facebook, stating that they would be closed out of respect and expressing shock over the shooting.
