The Greensboro Police Department received a report of a shooting around 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the 2400 block of Phillips Avenue.

Upon arriving at the scene, they discovered two individuals, Sharelle Johnson, 25, and a 20-year-old man, who had been shot.

The vehicle was heavily damaged on the bodywork and had a broken rear window. The Greensboro Police Department advised that Kayson was found unharmed in Siler City and being transported back to Greensboro.
