Man found dead on the sidewalk after shooting in Winston-Salem


A shooting left a 58-year-old man dead early Wednesday morning in Winston-Salem, authorities said.

Winston-Salem police were called to the 2300 block of Woodland Avenue about 12:30 a.m. and found Billy Joe Glenn of Shattalon Drive lying on a sidewalk with an apparent gunshot wound to his chest.

Glenn was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The shooting appears to be an isolated event.

No arrests had been made by Wednesday afternoon, police Lt. Gregory Dorn said.

An autopsy will be performed on Glenn's body Thursday at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, Dorn said.

Glenn's death is the city's 23rd homicide this year, as compared with 23 homicides for the same period in 2019, police said.

Anyone with information regarding this shooting can call the Winston-Salem police at 336-773-7700 or Crime Stoppers at 336-727-2800. Crime Stoppers of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County also is on Facebook.
