Police say a validated gang member shot this morning in Greenville has died, the second murder in the city in the past four days.
Police Chief Hassan Aden says Travis Foreman was shot multiple times and later died at Vidant Medical Center.
The shooting was reported around 2:30 a.m. on Ridge Place.
Relatives say Foreman lived in the quadraplex for about four months with his girlfriend.
Aden says no arrests have been made, but he said investigators are piecing together promising leads in the case.
The 30-year-old Foreman has a criminal background going back to 2001. Records show the victim last got out of prison in June for a drug conviction. He's also served time for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, as well as other drug convictions.
On Friday, Caitlin Faulkenberry was killed during what police say was a domestic homicide at Whitebridge Apartments on East Fire Tower Road. The woman's fiance, Calvin Clay, Jr. has been charged in that murder.
The murder Monday morning of Foreman happened not far from a 2013 homicide that police say was gang-related.
In that murder, Quastepheon Hardison of Robersonville was shot at the intersection of Ridge Place and Cortland Road. Deon Daniel is still awaiting trial in that case.
Greenville police cars swarmed a neighborhood before dawn on Monday after a man was shot.
Sergeant Mike Broadwell said the shooting was reported around 2:30 a.m. at a quadraplex, a house with four separate homes, at 106 Ridge Place.
Nearly a dozen police cars were parked along the street and officers were going door to door, talking with neighbors and taking statements.
Sgt. Broadwell said the man who was shot was taken to Vidant Medical Center, but we do not know his condition.
Police have scheduled a 1:00 p.m. news conference to update the media on the shooting.
