Sep. 20—THOMASVILLE — A 15-year-old boy was wounded by gunfire outside an apartment complex in Thomasville in what police are calling a gang-related shooting.
An officer heard several gunshots while on patrol just before 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the downtown area along E. Guilford Street, police said. Davidson County emergency communications at the same time received several 911 calls reporting the shooting at Big Chair Lofts.
As the officer arrived, several people were seen running from the area. The officer was able to find the wounded teenager inside an apartment, but the investigation determined the shooting happened in the parking lot. Detectives recovered numerous shell casings in different areas of the parking lot.
Five firearms, two of which had been reported stolen, also were found, according to police.
