WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — A man is in custody after allegedly shooting into a woman’s vehicle, according to the Winston-Salem Police Department.

At around 6:35 p.m. on Monday, officers came to the 1000 block of Nancy Lane after getting a report of discharging firearms in the area.

At the scene, police found several spent handgun shell casings in the roadway.

Investigators say that the victim and suspect both left the area before they arrived. A short time later the victim called the police to report that the suspect was at her home with a gun. Officers responded but the suspect once again left the scene before they arrived.

The victim and the suspect were involved in a disturbance on Nancy Lane, according to police. The victim reports that she got into her vehicle and began driving away when the suspect began to fire the handgun at the vehicle and into the air.

Investigators say that the victim’s vehicle showed damage consistent with being shot into.
