August 6, 2019

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Police say one man was shot and killed during an argument outside a North Carolina restaurant.

Winston-Salem Police Capt. Steven Tollie told reporters the shooting happened Tuesday afternoon outside the restaurant near a busy mall.

He said responding officers found one man with a gunshot wound, and he later died. His name was not immediately released.

Tollie said he was shot after several men who were customers of the restaurant got into an argument outside.

He said a gun was fired during the argument, striking the man who later died. He said the men involved are being questioned by police and that no one connected with the shooting is at large.

He described it as an isolated event and not an ongoing threat to the community.
