AUTOPSY: Man found dead in Greenville Planet Fitness parking lot was shot in the head

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – An autopsy released today says a man found dead in the parking lot of a gym was shot in the face.

Jayden Harrison was found in the Greenville Planet Fitness parking lot just after midnight on July 4th, 2023.

The autopsy sent to WITN Wednesday details the 22-year-old’s injuries.

It says he died from a gunshot wound to the head and that he was shot on the left side of his face, injuring a major blood vessel and his spinal cord.

A summary from the medical examiner says Harrison was likely shot in the mouth, as there were two broken teeth found next to him.

Greenville Police still haven’t made any arrests in the case. Lieutenant Justin Wooten says they also have not identified any suspects.

However, they released photos in early August of a man seen in the area of the murder around the time that it happened, asking for anyone who can to ID him.

Greenville Police provided a statement Wednesday afternoon about the case:

“As we approach the six-month anniversary of the homicide that occurred at Planet Fitness, the Greenville Police Department is grateful that the public has continued to keep Jayden and his family in their thoughts and prayers during this investigation.

Detectives have diligently investigated this case since the beginning of this tragic incident and continue to do so today. The Greenville Police Department is committed to holding the suspects accountable in this case and finding justice for Jayden.”
