Winston-Salem police officers investigate the scene of a homicide at 1628 Thompson Drive on Friday.
A Winston-Salem man was shot to death Friday inside his home in the city’s southern section, authorities said.
Michael Miles Zamora, 30, died at the scene at 1628 Thompson Drive, police Lt. Eric Montgomery said. Zamora was shot at least one time.
The shooting was reported to police about 2:30 p.m., Montgomery said. Officers found Zamora unresponsive inside the house. Detectives with the police department’s Criminal Investigations Division have assumed responsibility for the case. The preliminary investigation indicates the suspect fled the scene, police said in a news release.
The shooting was not the result of a domestic dispute, Montgomery said. He didn’t immediately know of a motive for the shooting.
“I don’t know of any threat to the public,” Montgomery said.
Police blocked the street in front of the house, but people who live in the neighborhood were allowed to return to their homes.
Several people who lived in the area told the Journal that they did not know Zamora. Detectives questioned neighbors about the shooting.
Authorities are asking that anyone with information regarding this investigation contact the Winston-Salem Police Department at (336) 773-7700 or CrimeStoppers at (336) 727-2800.
