'Somebody's in the middle of the street shooting at us!' | Greensboro 911 calls reveal suspect fired at multiple drivers along Lees Chapel Road

Greensboro Police arrested and charged Wesley Reid after the Wednesday morning incident.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — For the first time, we're hearing calls to Guilford Metro 911, revealing a shooting suspect fired at multiple drivers traveling along a Greensboro road last week. 

"I'm driving down Lees Chapel, and there's a guy walking in the middle of the road with a gun pointing at cars! Like, trying to stop them," said one of the callers, "He's in the middle of the road, like a four-lane street."

Greensboro Police arrested Wesley Reid last week, charging him in this case. He's facing several different charges, including assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, discharging a firearm in the city, as well as being intoxicated and disruptive.

911 calls from two different drivers paint a clearer picture of the suspect's actions early Wednesday morning - from pointing a handgun at people as they slowed down to avoid him - to pulling the trigger and firing at the cars. 

"Oh my God, I hope they get him," said one 911 caller, "I just pray that nobody [got shot]. It scared us bad."

Last week, a Triad woman shared her scary encounter with this same suspect. Caroline Pennington told WFMY News 2 it's a miracle she got away safe, without any damage to her car, after the suspect pointed the gun straight at her through her front window. 

"I’m waiting for him to get over. I get about 20 yards, and he still doesn’t get over," she explained, "I get 15 yards [away] and he pulls the gun. He’s got it pointed at my windshield. Like, I was looking down the barrel of the gun."

Reid appears before a judge in early January 2020.
