GREENSBORO, N.C. - A Dudley High School senior is dead after he was assaulted in the 2000 block of Niagara Street on Monday night, according to police.
Investigators say Rontaveon Montrice Porter, 17, died from apparent gunshot wounds while undergoing treatment at a local hospital. Porter was a senior at Dudley High School.
Around 8:40 p.m. on Monday, officers responded to the parking lot of 2006 Niagara Street in reference to reports of two people having been shot around that area.
When they arrived on scene, police found Porter and the second victim suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Both victims were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Danielle McGee, who lives on Niagara Street, was inside her apartment with her kids when the shooting took place!
She says they had to duck for cover when they heard gunshots!
"I was just literally folding up clothes and all a sudden it sounded like fireworks," said Danielle McGee. "I got down. I got my babies down, that was the worst thing in the world to have to try to shield your children from gunfire!"
Neighbors like Tamieka Rankin say they're tired of seeing violence so close to home.
"When is enough? When is enough? It's crazy! When is enough? Somebody lost their child! I don't know that child but somebody lost a child! That's a baby, he's 17 years old," said Rankin. "That's sad. That hurts my heart."
Police say the second victim has been treated and released from the hospital. His name has not been released at this time.
