Wednesday, April 28 at 9:08 p.m., Henderson Police responded to a call for a gunshot victim.
Parrish Nathaniel Jefferson, 29, was shot. He walked a couple of blocks to the Vance County Magistrate’s Office to receive assistance after his automobile collided with another car at the intersection of Andrews Avenue and Chestnut Street.
According to a Henderson Police Department press release, emergency aid was rendered by EMS, and Jefferson was transported by ambulance to a local medical facility.
One of Henderson’s busiest intersections nearby, Garnett Street at Andrews Avenue, was determined to be the crime scene, the scene of the shooting.
Police indicated that Jefferson was driving a black 2018 Infinity and had an encounter with occupants of another vehicle while at the intersection. Gunfire erupted and the Infinity, then traveling west on Andrews Avenue, collided with a 2005 Toyota passenger car being operated by a Domino’s pizza delivery driver at the intersection of Andrews and Chestnut.
The Toyota’s driver was also transported by EMS to a local medical center for non life-threatening injuries.
