Man Found Fatally Wounded on University Campus
GREENSBORO, NC (April 21, 2017) – An unidentified adult male was found deceased on the campus of NC A&T State University late yesterday night after a visitor reported a struggle with another unidentified man to campus security.
A few minutes before 11:30 pm on April 20, a visitor to the university notified campus security at Pride Hall, 410 S. Benbow St., that she was approached by a black male armed with handgun. The visitor and the armed man had a brief struggle, at which time the weapon discharged. The woman was not shot, however received a minor injury. The assailant fled the scene.
Campus police responded to the area to search for the armed man, and found the unidentified male suffering from life-threatening injuries in a vehicle near Pride Hall. He was transported to Moses Cone Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
