HENDERSON, NC (WNCN) — A mid-day shooting at a gas station occurred just before 4:30 p.m. Saturday on West Andrews Avenue in Henderson.
CBS 17 crews were at the gas station Monday morning.
There were still several bullet holes lining the building’s front windows.
The front door had been smashed over the weekend but has since been replaced.
Henderson police told CBS 17 they are looking for the people involved in the shooting.
There are several arrest warrants against them.
One person involved suffered some foot injuries but is expected to recover.
“I’m glad I wasn’t there,” Norman Brown said.
Brown could have been in a firing line if he’d paid a visit to the gas station over the weekend.
He said he goes there often.
“You know, god bless I wasn’t,” Brown added. “It shakes me up a bit.”
Saturday afternoon’s shooting was something CBS 17 had never spoken to around town before.
“Wow. That’s awful,” said Jennifer Edwards.
CBS 17 crews showed Edwards the surveillance video.
She watched as cameras caught a man getting out of a white car with what appeared to be some kind of gun tucked into his pants.
The man walks towards the gas station door when another man walks back in at the door and appears to be drawing his gun.
Suddenly, dozens of shots ring out through the glass door and across the gas station.
The glass door shatters and a third man is seen stumbling out of the building to his car to get to safety.
The men with guns are seen walking behind the gas station building and the shooting stops.
“It’s a bit scary to know that you can just get gas and this is going to happen,” explains Edwards.
She said crime seems to be increasing in her city and she’s not sure how to fix it.
“I don’t know what the police could do,” Edwards said.
She hopes her community can be safe for everyone again.
“I try to be aware of my surroundings wherever I go,” Edwards said.
“Anyone and anyone can be hit by a bullet anywhere, anytime,” Brown said.
