Today, Governor Roy Cooper announced that the State is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Carolyn Rose Tiger, age 26.
On Sunday, March 3, 2019, police officers responded to the intersection of Patton Avenue and S. Elm-Eugene Street due to shots being fired in the area. Upon arrival, police located a vehicle that had crashed into the fence in the area of S. Elm-Eugene Street and Concord Street. The victim was identified as Carolyn Rose Tiger of Greensboro, North Carolina. She was driving a black Nissan with two children as passengers at the time of the shooting. Ms. Tiger's vehicle was possibly involved in a minor traffic accident with what is described as a newer model light blue Hyundai type vehicle somewhere in the area of S. Elm-Eugene Street and Meadowview Drive. Both vehicles traveled north on S. Elm-Eugene Street to the area of Patton Avenue where the light blue Hyundai attempted to block the victim's vehicle. The driver of the light blue Hyundai got out of his car, retrieved a rifle from his trunk and opened fire on the victim's vehicle as it was attempting to leave the area northbound on S. Elm-Eugene Street. Carolyn Tiger was struck by the gun fire and pronounced dead from her wounds shortly after arrival at Moses Cone Hospital.
