Responding officers witnessed a 20-year-old man from High Point running across Brentwood Street. Officers detained the man and found he was unharmed after checking him for injuries, police said. 

Police learned the man was the intended target of the shooter, whose shots struck two vehicles in the store's parking lot. 

A short time later, officers located the shooter, identified as 28-year-old Tyzid B. Williams, walking near Leonard Avenue. During his arrest, officers found two firearms in his possession, one of which matched the caliber of shell casings located at the shooting scene, according to police.
