Drive-By Shooting in Johnston Thursday
web posted April 8, 2011
JOHNSTON – Just after 4 pm Thursday afternoon 911
dispatchers began receiving calls of shots fired in the area of Johnson
and Walker Streets. As Johnston Police were responding additional calls
came in that two men were firing shots at two other men walking on
Johnson Street, not far from the shooting incident last month on Dove
Street. According to police, no one was injured in the shooting.
Johnston Investigator Lamaz Robinson said they recovered five shell
casings from the scene, "but we don't have any victims. They ran and
haven't come forward."
Two black males were reported driving in a black Trailblazer as they
approached the two men walking when at least one of the two occupants
in the SUV brandished a pistol and shots were fired. The two men
walking ran behind nearby homes and disappeared and have not, at this
time, contacted police.
Sheriff's Deputies converged on the area trying to locate the
Trailblazer as it fled from the scene, but were unsuccessful. The
Sheriff's Crime Scene Unit processed the scene along with Johnston
The two victims were described as black males wearing white t-shirts
and dark pants.
That description matches those arrested
in the recent shooting on nearby Dove Street a month ago.
At this time the two shooting
incidents are not considered to be related.
