The city of Greenville saw two separate shootings on Monday, with one leaving a woman dead and another leaving the male victim in critical condition.
At 7:43 p.m. Monday, officers with the Greenville Police Department responded to the 600 block of North Hinds Street in reference to a shot person, said Assistant Police Chief Michael Merchant.
On scene, officers found a deceased black female, identified as 36-year-old Latwayna Gray, with gunshot wounds inside a vehicle.
Investigators of the Criminal Investigation Unit have started a follow-up investigation of the incident.
“Preliminary finds are that the victim went to the area with a friend to visit other acquaintances,” Assistant Police Chief Michael Merchant said.
“The friend exited the vehicle and the victim stayed inside. As the friend was exiting, shots were fired from a grassy area across the street from the vehicle.” At this time, there are no suspects or motives for this incident.
Just a few hours later, there was yet another shooting.
At 11:39 p.m., officers were called to the 1100 block of Margaret Boulevard in reference to a shot person.
“Once on scene, they discovered a black male that had been shot,” Merchant said, noting the 41-year-old was transported to Delta Health-The Medical Center and was in critical but stable condition at the time.
If anyone has any information on either of these incidents, they are urged to call the Greenville Police Department at 662-378-1515 or Crimestoppers at 662-378-8477.
