HIGH POINT, NC (WGHP) – A store worker has offered a graphic account of the scene after a possible shooting that occurred on South Main Street and West Market Center Drive in High Point.
It was part of a situation that unfolded in the parking lot of Kagan’s Home furniture store on Monday night when a store window was smashed.
According to a High Point police incident report, there may be a connection to an accident at the same intersection.
The report details an accident and lists the same two vehicles behind the crime scene tape.
The police are actively investigating and are unable to give details of the crime that occurred.
Surveillance cameras at a nearby store recorded clues in the case. FOX8 obtained two videos captured in a parking lot near the disturbance.
The first video showed a customer leaving the Universal Halal Meat and Grocery Shop on College Drive. Several gunshots can be heard in the video.
“We’re just starting to hear gunshots going outside,” said one employee, who asked FOX8 not to reveal his identity.
A customer in the video ducks over the side of his truck and then runs forward for cover until the gunfire stops.
Four minutes later, a woman in a white dress comes to the door of the store. In the video, the woman is heard asking another customer for help, that she is pregnant and has been shot.
The store clerk told FOX8 he knew something was wrong when he saw her at the door.
“The lady was covered in blood and screaming, screaming for help,” he said. “She was like blood running down her feet. She had no shoes. He left blood prints.
He called 911 and asked the woman to stay put.
“She was walking from my store to Sonic,” he said. “I was going to come in and bring towels, everything, you know, try to cover her stomach and everything so she wouldn’t bleed so much.”
The employee said he saw two men walking through the parking lot of Kagan’s Home furniture store.
“I didn’t know if they were going to check them to see what happened in the car or run away from the scene,” he said.
He told FOX8 that first responders arrived at the Sonic on South Main Street and took the woman to an ambulance.
Crime scene investigators spent several hours taking photos of two vehicles and collecting evidence in front of the furniture store.
FOX8 cameras spotted four investigators at the scene and at Sonic on Tuesday morning.
“We hear about shootings in High Point all the time, but it really doesn’t strike you until you get to experience it firsthand and see how it affects someone,” he said. -he declares.
FOX8 has contacted High Point Police multiple times for details of the investigation. A spokesperson said an update will be released later.
