CLINTON, N.C. (WNCN) – Two teens were shot after at least 10 bullets were fired into a home in Sampson County near Clinton on Tuesday morning, family members and law enforcement officials told CBS 17.
Family members who spoke to CBS 17 at the scene identified the two victims as their cousins — 16 and 18 years old — and said that someone shot into their home in the McLamb’s Mobile Home Park on Byrd-Yancey-Bass Road.
Police identified the victims as being 17 and 18 years old and the shooting occurred just after midnight.
The family said they don’t understand why someone would want to shoot up their home.
The Sampson County Sheriff’s Office said in a release that the teens were both shot in “their lower extremities” and that “the wounds did not appear to be life-threatening.”
The victims were transported to Sampson Regional Medical Center for treatment. The teens are expected to be OK, according to family members.
Our crew at the scene counted at least 10 bullet holes in the home.
The sheriff’s office said a second home on Byrd-Yancey-Bass Road was also damaged by gunfire but no one was injured.
There are currently no suspects in either shooting, authorities said.
