The 17-year-old was “extremely emotional” when police arrived about 3:20 p.m., an officer said in the report.
“They was just shooting at us,” the friend told the officer. He said he saw a silver Chevrolet sedan leaving the area following the shooting, but he did not know who was driving it.
When White crashed, the 17-year-old yelled for help and was handed a sheet by a neighbor to help stop the bleeding until police and EMS took over, according to the report. White died after being taken to Southern Regional Medical Center.
According to the report, investigators found several rounds in the backseat of the Nissan, which belonged to White’s stepfather. The man told police he did not know anyone who would want to hurt his stepson.
No arrests have been announced in the case.
“Please keep his family and our employees in your prayers,” Cole’s spokesman said in the statement. “His infectious smile and friendliness will surely be missed.”
