Guilford County was shaken up last week by a shooting at a mobile home park and, on Wednesday, July 15, the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department announced an arrest had been made in the case.
It also stated that investigators were still looking for help from the public regarding the incident.
There has been concern about the number of shootings recently in Guilford County – and across the country – and the incident that occurred in the early morning hours of Thursday, July 9 – a double shooting – added to the distressing tally.
Fortunately, in this case, both victims survived.
According to the Wednesday, July 15 release from the Sheriff’s Department, at about 4:15 a.m. on Thursday, July 9, officers got a report of shots fired near Oakwood Mobile Home Park at 4200 US 29 N. in Greensboro.
The release goes on to state, “Deputies arrived and located two victims who had been shot. Both victims were transported to a local hospital by EMS and their injuries are currently not believed to be life threatening. On Monday, July 13, 2020, Quanell Peterson (35 years of age) of Greensboro NC was arrested and charged with two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.”
The release, which was accompanied by a photo of Peterson, who can be seen above, also stated that the investigation is ongoing.
