A teen was killed and a second person was injured in a drive-by shooting in Winston-Salem on Wednesday evening, according to Winston-Salem police investigators.
Police identified the person who died as Jaheim Tavion Davis, 18, of Trellis Lane in Winston-Salem.
Authorities found Davis when they arrived at the scene of the shooting in the 2000 block of East 25th Street around 5 p.m.
Just minutes later, a second man, Wilbert Clyron Thompson, 56, reported to police that the suspects also shot him while driving through the area.
Authorities say Thompson was not an intended target and was struck while the suspects were firing indiscriminately at Davis.
Emergency crews took Davis to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injury. Thompson’s injury is not considered to be life-threatening and he was being treated at a local hospital.
Davis’ death marks the 20th homicide to be reported in Winston-Salem in 2021, as compared with 17 homicides for the same period of time in 2020.
