On Sept. 22 at approximately 7:14 p.m., officers with the Goldsboro Police Department responded to an alert of gunfire from the ShotSpotter gunfire detection system. The alert was for multiple gunshots in the area of 518 E. Elm St.
When officers arrived, they did not find any victims or property damage. Officers were able to locate and collect evidence of the gunshots from the scene. At approximately 10:30 p.m., officers with the Special Enforcement Unit located a vehicle with obvious damage from gunfire in a separate location within the city.
Officers were able to link the vehicle to the previous ShotSpotter alert and discovered that a subject with gunshot wounds, Sileek Warren, 23, had been transported to UNC Health Wayne shortly after the gunfire incident.
Warren was transferred to ECU Health for further treatment. A second victim, who was not injured, was identified as Jykeis Mclean, 21.
A collaborative effort between the Goldsboro Police Department’s Investigative Services Bureau, Special Enforcement Unit, Patrol Division and the North Carolina Department of Adult Corrections Probation/Parole resulted in identifying a suspect for the shooting.
