One woman is dead and a man is in critical condition at the hospital as a result of separate shootings Monday in Greenville.
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 black female, identified as 36-year-old Latwayna Gray, with gunshot wounds inside a vehicle.
Emergency medical personnel was dispatched along with the Washington County Coroner, and the victim was pronounced dead on scene.
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,” 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.
Also Monday night, 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 as of press time.
This incident is being investigated as a domestic violence situation, but Merchant said he is limited on what information can be released for the time being.
“Once the information becomes available, we will release more,” he said.
