The Daily Reflector

Thursday, November 15, 2018

A woman who died from a gunshot wound on Thursday had been talking with several people near her home when someone opened fire, the Greenville Police Department reported.

Shantelle Pope, 27, died at Vidant Medical Center from severe injuries she suffered in the shooting about 9 p.m. on Tuesday, department spokeswoman Kristen Hunter said. She was not the intended target of the shooter.

Pope lived at 102 Tyson St., and the shooting occurred immediately in front of a vacant house next door, Hunter said. She was talking with several other people in the road when someone drove by and began shooting.

“We believe one, or more, of the individuals she was with were the intended targets,” Hunter said in an email.

In response to a question from The Daily Reflector, she said it was too early to say whether the shooting was drug or gang related.

“Detectives have received limited information from witnesses at the scene,” she said. “However, cameras in the area are proving to be helpful in developing leads.”

People at 102 Tyson on Thursday declined to answer questions from The Daily Reflector about Pope or the incident.

The incident is now a homicide investigation and detectives are “following up on significant leads,” the police department reported.

The department reported earlier that detectives believe the incident is isolated incident and that there is no ongoing threat to the public.

CrimeStoppers is offering up to a $2,500 reward for information that leads to an arrest. Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives at 252-329-4277 or call CrimeStoppers at 252-758-7777.
