UPDATE (7/3/23 5:00PM) – Today we have more details including the names of two suspects arrested and the condition of the victims after the Asheboro Police Department and Randolph County 911 released additional information.

From newly released records, we now know the first 911 call came in at 11:03 PM reporting a noise complaint around Pine Grove Dr off Zoo Parkway in Asheboro. Two additional calls came in at 11:17 PM and 11:21 PM, reporting loud noises and music as well as cars parked on the side of the road and groups of people walking through yards in the neighborhood.

The large gathering was reported to be a birthday party by later 911 callers, which was taking place in a wooded area near or behind a home in the 800 block of Salem Court.

Police were already on the way to investigate those complaints when at 11:23 PM, the first 911 call came in from a driver passing by who reported hearing six gunshots as well as seeing people running from the scene.

In the next half hour Randolph County 911 would receive almost a dozen phone calls, nearly half a dozen of those from panicked party goers who were with victims who had been shot. Telecommunicators with Randolph County 911 worked to calm down hysterical callers to get them to provide first aid for the gunshot victims until police and EMS could arrive.

Late last week the Asheboro Police Department released the names of two suspects.

On June 29th, 2023, police arrested 18-year-old Davion Louisa Savoy and charged him with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious bodily injury, four counts of attempted first degree murder, and discharging a weapon into occupied property.
