SHOOTING AND ROBBING AT HOMECOMING
Greensboro police had their hands full on Nov. 2 with activities related to NC A&T University’s annual alumni celebration, known as the Greatest Homecoming On Earth. Police reported to campus on a shooting call at 10 p.m. and found 21-yearold Devine Eatmon suffering from serious, but not life threatening injuries. Police determined that Eatmon had been struck from a “considerable” distance from a round shot by one or more individuals in a grassy area near McCain Hall. The suspects are described as four black males, three of whom had dreadlocks, who were armed with handguns.
And at about midnight, several individuals, including Chris Rogers, 28, Jamelia Livingston, 27, Tiffany Mack, 29, and Kendra Pone, 27, were in the parking lot behind the Warehouse 29 club when a black male with a moustache and hair in short braids approached them with a handgun.
Anyone with information about either of these incidents is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 336.373.1000.
WILD NIGHT AT MOTHER TUCKERS
Numerous customers and employees were inside Mother Tuckers Eatery on Spring Garden Street in Greensboro at about 1:20 a.m. on Sunday when a black male, weighing 230 to 255 pounds, with dreadlocks extending to his chest fired a single round into the ceiling. Officers responding to the scene determined that no one was injured or threatened. The shooter presumably fled because police did not report making an arrest. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 336.373.1000.
