WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — As Winston-Salem police continue to search for the gunman connected to a Thursday evening drive-by, they are reviewing security video captured by a nearby grocery store.

The shooting was reported at 7:32 p.m. at 317 E. 14th St.

Police said two men were sitting on the front porch when a vehicle approached the house and the shooter fired several shots.

Both men were hit in the legs.

The men were taken to the hospital and there is no word on their condition.

Friday morning, the owner of Patterson’s Grocery, at the corner of 14th Street and Patterson Avenue, re-watched his security video.
