WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A 9-year-old North Carolina boy is in critical but stable condition after he was shot in the neck, police said Thursday.

Winston-Salem police Lt. Gregory Dorn said the boy was shot Wednesday while he was in a vehicle trying to leave a location, the Winston-Salem Journal reported. Dorn said the shooting followed an argument between two adults.

Police said after the car’s driver realized the boy was shot, they were involved in an accident while leaving the site of the argument. Dorn said investigators haven’t determined what started the argument.

Dorn said police have a suspect and an investigation is continuing.

On Wednesday, police said a 15-year-old by was found shot to death on the city’s north side. According to police, officers found Dacarius Dion Williams lying in the street with at least one gunshot wound. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died, authorities said.



Dorn said Williams was shot after he left a vehicle, and added that a black SUV at the scene had a shattered rear window on its driver’s side. Police are searching for a suspect in the case.
