Winston-Salem police arrested four men Wednesday night after a drive-by shooting injured a man and damaged four other people’s property, according to the police department.
Around 7:49 p.m. officers went to 1825 Flatrock St. after getting a call about a shooting there, police said. A group of men in a black car had driven by the house and started shooting, hitting 47-year-old Jose Guadalupe Yanez-Rodriguez multiple times, police said.
First-responders took Yanez-Rodriguez to an area hospital where he is in stable condition, police said. He does not appear to be the intended target of the shooting.
About six minutes after getting the shooting call at Flatrock Street, police received another call about a drive-by shooting in the 2300 block of Spaugh Court, about two miles away.
The same group of men that shot Yanez-Rodriguez shot into a home and two cars, damaging them all. There were no injuries.
The police department’s Violent Firearms Investigation Team and Gang Unit both responded, with VFIT taking the lead in the investigation. Detectives determined the shootings are the result of an ongoing dispute between groups of people.
