WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — A 19-year-old was shot in Winston-Salem on Wednesday and found on Waughtown Street and Reynolds Forest Drive, according to the Winston-Salem Police Department.
A dozen shell casings were found at Quarry Park, where police say the victim was hanging out with a group of friends. A fight broke out between a male and a female there and the victim tried to break up the fight when the suspect shot him, according to witnesses.
The bullet went through his arm and into his chest, but his injuries are not life-threatening.
The victim drove away while the suspects continued to fire at him. He stopped at Reynolds Forest Drive and Waughtown Street to call the police when he began “feeling the effects of being shot.”
The suspects left the Quarry Park area in a blue Honda sedan.
A woman’s car was shot on Marble Street but she was not injured. The suspects also reportedly shot a house on Argonne Boulevard, and a woman in the house was grazed by a bullet.
The investigation is ongoing.
