WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — A 63-year-old woman was shot in what Winston-Salem police are calling a “targeted incident” on Sunday.
Police came to the 5200 block of Old Rural Hall Road after getting reports of a shooting in the area. At the scene, they discovered the woman sitting in front of her residence with a single gunshot wound to the leg.
Emergency Medical Services took the victim to the hospital and her injuries are considered to be “non-life-threatening.”
Investigators say that a red pickup truck drove past the residence shooting and that the attack appears to be a “targeted incident, not a random act of violence.”
The investigation is ongoing and in its early stages and no further information is available at this time.
