One Dead In Shooting in Greensboro Parking Lot: Police

Greensboro Police Search For Deadly Shooting Suspect

GREENSBORO — The Greensboro Police Department are investigating a deadly shooting that happened on Wednesday in a parking lot in the 300 block of W. Gate City Blvd.

The victim's name was released Thursday morning as Darrell Lee Sisk, Jr. Sisk, 28, has no permanent address according to Greensboro police.

A witness called 911 around 12:35 p.m. to report the shooting. Upon arrival, first responders found Sisk with a gunshot wound to his upper torso. Sisk later died at a hospital. 

GPD says the shooting wasn't random and stemmed from a fight between two men who knew each other.

Capt. Nathaniel Davis with GPD says neither the suspect nor the victim were clients of the Greensboro Urban Ministry.

"We do not have any indication that the parties involved had any type of relation to the urban ministry," said Davis. "Again, it's unfortunate that it happened in this area. They are a tremendous asset to this community. We want to make sure we help them stay up and running."

UNC Greensboro tweeted out a Spartan Alert shortly before 1 p.m. with a few details.

GPD says the shooter is still on the loose.

Investigators are looking for a man wearing a grayish cap, red and white shirt, blue jeans, and white shoes.

Police are withholding the name the victim until next of kin is notified.

Davis says investigators need help from the community to track down the suspect.

"There could be other parties involved. If someone else can help us provide clarity and put the pieces together in this terrible incident, please come forward," said Davis.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000, or text badboyz to 274637.All calls are completely anonymous, and may result in a reward of up to $2,000.
