16-Year-Old Boy, Reginald Dewayne Gray, Charged With Hanes Mall Shooting

According to the investigators, Reginald Dewayne Gray, aged 26 and from Winston-Salem, was one of the individuals who participated in the shooting. On a weekday afternoon, the shopping mall was placed under lockdown.

However, he has not been charged with being the shooter of any gunfire. Gray is under investigation because he had a gun in his possession despite having a felony conviction.

According to the police, Atrium Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is listed as the location where his arrest took place. The Winston-Salem police department says he is being held at the Forsyth County jail, and there is no way for him to get out on bond.

Where Are The Victims?

On Tuesday afternoon, a man was shot at the Hanes Mall, and that individual is now facing charges related to the incident. After being discharged from the hospital, law enforcement officials took him into custody.

According to Winston-Salem police, the shooting was preceded by an altercation between the shooter and another guy. Despite being a convicted felon, Reginald Dewayne Gray allegedly possessed a handgun.

According to a news release, law enforcement officers identified and detained a 16-year-old teenager on Tuesday in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. According to the authorities, he was taken into custody without any trouble or complications.

Gray was arrested and sent to the Forsyth County Law Enforcement Detention Center, where he will remain without the possibility of posting bail.

The mall is said to hire off-duty police officers on the weekends to keep an eye on the parking lot, which the police say is often watched.

What happened at Hanes Mall?

The gunfire reportedly occurred at 1:52 pm at the food court entrance, according to the accounts of the responding police officers.

In the open, next to the Golden Corral restaurant, was Gray. He was taken to the hospital after being shot in the arm and received treatment for non-life-threatening wounds.

According to witnesses at the mall, at least six rounds were heard when the incident occurred. As soon as they heard the shots, everybody in the mall began running to find a safe hiding spot.

According to Fox 8, Shay Jacobs, who has worked in the food court at Hanes Mall for the past 12 years, was not the first gun violence she witnessed in the shopping center. She was familiar with the sound even before hearing the rifle go off, so it didn’t take long to identify it.

After what happened, the Hanes Mall was put on lockdown while the police looked into what happened.
