Greenville police investigating three shootings, one arrest made

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Greenville police are investigating three shootings that happened less than 24 hours apart.

Greenville police Sgt. A. Etheridge says police were called to Douglas Avenue for reports of shots fired around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday.

When officers arrived, they learned that one victim had been shot at, but was uninjured. With the help of witnesses, Sgt. Etheridge says Kareem Gibbs, 26, was named as a suspect in the shooting.

He was located at a home on Douglas Avenue and taken into custody.

He's charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and possession of cocaine.

Gibbs went before a judge Thursday morning who set his bond at $60,000 and gave him a court-appointed lawyer. The man's next court date is August 22nd.

Just a few hours earlier, police were called to two additional shootings.

Sgt. Etheridge says several rounds were fired into two homes on Greene Street around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday night. Details are limited at this time and police are still trying to determine who is responsible.

There's no word on whether or not anyone was injured.

About three hours later, police say a car was struck on Cedar Court.

Sgt. Etheridge says a person reported hearing their car alarm go off in the parking lot around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. When police arrived, they found that a car window and the back of the car had both been struck by bullets.

No one was injured in the shooting and no suspects have been named.

Police say they are continuing to investigate if these cases are connected.
