Greenville police investigating after two women shot, one fatally

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Police are searching for whoever shot two women Tuesday, one of them fatally.

Greenville police say that officers went to a shots fired call around 11:30 p.m. at an apartment in the 2100 block of Montclair Drive. Inside the home, police found two women with gunshot wounds.

Police say Tammy Greene, 55, died at the scene while Karla White, 34, was taken to ECU Health Medical Center where she is expected to survive.

Detectives say they believe that Greene and White were targeted.

A woman, who lives near where the shooting happened says violence is sadly a common thing around their neighborhood.

“There’s always something happening on my little block, especially in these rows of houses,” said Neighbor, Marlaka Williams.

Williams continued by saying, “Everyone is going to have trauma, especially on the block. I have small children; a bullet has no name. That bullet could’ve gone through the door into the other house or out. That’s happened to me before in my own experience so I understand what that is personally.”

Investigators are continuing to follow up on leads and more information will be released as soon as possible, we’re told.

If you have information in the case, call Crime Stoppers at 252-758-7777.

Greenville police originally listed the victim’s name as Tammy Greene Cotton, but on Thursday they said her name was Tammy Greene.
