FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — One man is dead and another is injured after Fayetteville police say they were run over by a vehicle in a convenience store parking lot following a “verbal fight” overnight.
Officers responded to the parking lot of Quick Stop Discount Tobacco along the 500-block of Grove Street at midnight Wednesday in reference to two men who were struck by a vehicle.
Once on scene, officers found the victims. One man was unresponsive and police “began immediate life-saving measures on the unresponsive victim and summoned medical personnel to the scene,” officials said in a release. “Despite life-saving measures, one victim was pronounced deceased on scene. The other victim was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.”
The preliminary investigation shows that the victims were hit by a vehicle in the parking lot of the business after a possible fight.
Police have not released the identities of the two victims. Police say there’s only one suspect at this time and they’re not sure of the relationship, if any, between the suspect and victims.
Police said they’re reviewing surveillance footage and don’t yet have a description of the vehicle or person involved.
The fatal incident remains under investigation.
