  • 0

Three male juveniles stole a vehicle at gunpoint Thursday in Winston-Salem, and then used the vehicle in a drive-by shooting, authorities said. No injuries were reported.

Two 16-year-olds and an 11-year-old were all charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Winston-Salem police received a robbery report from the 2800 block of Millbrook Drive and arrived at the scene at 8:17 a.m. Benita Marie Conrad, 45, told officers that three male juveniles approached her on Millbrook Drive in the city's northwestern section, police said.

One of the juveniles pointed a handgun at Conrad, ordering her to give them her vehicle, police said. Conrad complied with the demand, and the juveniles fled the scene in her silver 2018 Honda Accord.

Afterward, the juveniles conducted a drive-by shooting near 30th Street and Bon Air Avenue, but no one was injured by the gunfire, police said.
