Governor Roy Cooper announced on March 5 that the state is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Carolyn Rose Tiger, age 26, in Guilford County.

According to a release from the governor’s office, 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. She was driving a black Nissan with two children as passengers at the time of the shooting.  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.
