A shooting involving horses at a Winston-Salem greenway this weekend is still under investigation. 

One horse was killed, and two more were injured by gunfire early Saturday morning at the Muddy Creek Greenway.

Police were called to the scene following reports of three vehicles speeding on pedestrian paths. When officers investigated, they found shell casings, which led them to the horses.

The Winston-Salem Police Department has already identified one of three vehicles believed to be involved in the shootings. But Lieutenant Brian Dobey says questions remain.

“We’re trying to determine who might’ve been involved," says Dobey. "If there’s any additional witnesses, if anybody can provide any additional information that may help us."

A group called Fur-Ever Friends of NC is offering $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction. That’s on top of the $5,000 reward being offered by Crime Stoppers.
