Detectives say Sanders and Watson were outside with a group of people when a vehicle drove past, and someone inside opened fire. Investigators say no one else reported being shot but that other people left the scene before police arrived.

Authorities ask that anyone with information about the shooting call the Winston-Salem Police Department at 336-773-7700 or Crime Stoppers at 336-727-2800.
