HIGH POINT, NC – A traumatic 911 call led investigators to a gruesome scene Monday night.
“When I first heard it, I was shocked,” said James Williams, a family friend of the victim.
Several shots were fired at a car, hitting two people near the intersection of University Parkway and East Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
Jasmine Lewis, 29, was in the car. She was taken to hospital with injuries where she died.
“People called me then and said, ‘She failed,’ and then she showed up at home,” Williams said.
Williams knew Lewis as a young lady who always had a beautiful spirit and a matching smile.
“She was a pretty girl, she had a lot of respect, and a lot of people in town loved her,”
Williams is in trouble as to why it happened, and it also brings deeper pain that is hard for any family to imagine.
“You took the life of an innocent mother; “There’s a little kid, I mean, I’d like someone to say something,” Williams said.
With so many unanswered questions, Williams sticks to the faith and memories he will forever cherish from Louis.
“If her life is cut short so early, it’s pointless,” Williams said.
There are still no signs of a suspect. Police posted a photo of the suspect’s vehicle.
