Shooting arrests

The Winston-Salem Police Department’s (WSPD) Criminal Investigations Division were in the area of Waughtown Street and Cole Road at approximately 4:45 p.m. on May 5, when detectives said they witnessed occupants of a white Cadillac sedan shoot in the direction of a small Sport Utility Vehicle. The detectives were traveling in an unmarked patrol vehicle and were positioned between the Cadillac and the targeted SUV, according to the WSPD.
Detectives attempted to stop the white Cadillac when the driver, later identified as Josiah Brentt Davis, of Kernersville, failed to stop, resulting in a vehicle pursuit that came to an end at the dead end of Borum Drive in the area of Ridgewood Road, police said. Davis was arrested from the white Cadillac on Borum Drive. Jesus Lopez-Bernal and Christopher Penaloza, both of Winston-Salem, fled the white Cadillac on foot and were later captured after a foot pursuit near Union Cross Road, police said. Weapons were reportedly seized at the scene.
The investigation revealed that the incident was not a random act of violence.
Police charged Lopez-Bernal with resist, delay, obstruct an officer (RDO); Penaloza was charged with discharge firearm from an enclosure/discharging firearm in city limits/possession of marijuana with intent to sell and deliver marijuana/RDO; and Davis was charged with felony speeding to elude, maintaining a vehicle/possession to intent to sell and deliver marijuana and discharge firearm from an enclosure.
