Police Lt. Todd Hart, a police spokesman, couldn’t be reached Thursday to comment on these incidents.

A 55-year-old woman was taken to a hospital Thursday with multiple gunshot wounds after someone fired at her vehicle, Winston-Salem police said.

Shortly after 5 a.m., officers arrived at the 800 block of West 25th Street and found the victim, who had non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The victim was traveling in the 1000 block of Haywood Street when unknown suspects fired multiple rounds at her vehicle, which appeared to be targeted, police said.

A man robbed a Marco’s Pizza at 246 Jamestown Road at gunpoint Wednesday night, police said.

Officers went to the business about 8:30 p.m., where employees told police that a man came into the store, approached the cash register and demanded money while holding a handgun.

The man then stole the cash, left the business and was last seen running east toward Frandale Drive, police said.

An officer with a police dog searched for the suspect, but they didn’t find him.
