WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — Winston-Salem police arrested a suspect on Wednesday in connection to a shooting that left two people in critical condition last month.
According to police, a 19-year-old and 28-year-old were shot while sitting outside of apartments on Maryland Avenue on Feb. 16. The two men had critical injuries and were taken to the hospital. The 19-year-old was shot in the chest, and the 28-year-old was shot in the upper torso.
Police believe that suspects in a white or gray Chevrolet Malibu drove by and opened fire at the parking lot, shooting the victims.
A witness told police they also saw someone on an ATV “speed through the area” of Old Greensboro Road shortly after the shooting.
Danny Lee Welch, 35, of Winston-Salem, was identified as the shooter. He was arrested on Wednesday in the 2500 block of Ivy Avenue.
