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 Police.

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.
