are shot at store
A teenage clerk and a customer at a convenience store were shot Thursday night, according to a Goldsboro police report.
The clerk, Basem Allan, 16, and the customer, Antron Hines, 21, both of Goldsboro, were taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital, where they were treated in the emergency room and released, a spokeswoman said.
Allan told police that he was working at the Express Mart at 518 E. Elm St. at about 7 p.m., when he went outside to tell a group of five or six black men to leave the parking lot. As he turned around and walked back to the store, the report said, Allen heard five or six shots.
Allan went inside and realized that he had been shot in the upper right shoulder blade, the report said.
Hines said he had gone to the store to buy cheeseburgers for himself and a friend and then went outside to ask his friend what he wanted on the burger. That's when his friend heard someone say, "Don't shoot."
At that time, the report said, Hines said he heard shots, then went inside the store and realized that he had been shot in the arm. The bullet passed through the arm and entered his chest.
Neither Allan nor Hines could describe the assailants.
