HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) - A man has died after he was shot and his car crashed.

News outlets report High Point Police Lt. Curtis Cheeks says first responders found 35-year-old Alphonso Macer Jr. dead on Monday. Witnesses reported that Macer was shot before his vehicle struck a utility pole and flipped on its side, bringing down several power lines.
