GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) — One person died after a shooting in Goldsboro on Monday that is now being investigated as a homicide, police say.
Police said they received a ShotSpotter alert at approximately 10:11 a.m. for the area on Andrews Avenue just north of Holly Street.
Police said Wayne UNC Health Care then informed them that a shooting victim, identified as Cleveland Ward, 44, had arrived in a personal car in critical condition after being severely injured.
Officers said Ward died from his injuries after being flown via Life Flight helicopter to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.
Public Information Officer LaToya Henry also told CBS 17 that no form of informational session, including a press conference, is in the works for the city of Goldsboro despite the uptick in violence in the last four days.
Since Friday, a 26-year-old attempted to murder a 3-year-old in a drive-by shooting, a woman was struck by gunfire while sitting on her porch, two people were taken to the hospital after a Saturday morning shooting and a woman was raped and kidnapped Saturday night.
Meanwhile, police are actively investigating this shooting.
