WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Two people were shot during an altercation early Tuesday morning in Winston-Salem and a third person was injured when he leaped from a moving vehicle during a chase from the initial scene.

Winston-Salem police responded at about 5:40 a.m. to the Innkeeper at 2115 Peters Creek Parkway on a reported disturbance with weapons call. Officers arrived on scene, where witnesses said gunfire was exchanged during the altercation.

Witnesses pointed out a vehicle fleeing from the hotel. Officers attempted unsuccessfully to stop the  vehicle. The vehicle was pursued and eventually the driver jumped from the moving vehicle in the 300 block of Monmouth Street.

Young sustained serious injuries presumed to have occurred while leaping from the moving vehicle.  He was taken to Forsyth Hospital.

A passenger in the vehicle took control as the driver fled from Monmouth Street. The driver was stopped by police moments later in the 2200 block of Thomasville Road where the front passenger, Charles Perry, was discovered to have been shot in the upper thigh during the altercation at 2115 Peters Creek Parkway. He was taken to Baptist Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
