FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — A child, woman and man were taken to hospitals after they were all found shot in a car in Fayetteville in daylight early Saturday evening, police said.
The incident was initially reported just before 6:35 p.m. in the 6800 block of Cliffdale Road, according to Fayetteville Police Department Sgt. Alpha Caldwell.
Officers said they believed the shooting happened in another area of Cliffdale Road but that location was where the victims were stopped by police and found wounded in their car.
Just after 10 p.m., police said the shooting actually happened along the 1100 block of Seventy-First School Road.
“An adult male driver, an adult female passenger were suffering from serious gunshot wounds and a 12-year-old passenger also suffered from a gunshot wound,” a police news release said.
A black Mercedes-Benz sedan which appeared to have gunfire damage was later towed from the scene where the victims were found outside a convenience store.
No one has been detained in the shooting, Caldwell said.
Officers said anyone who has information about the shooting and would like to remain anonymous, can contact Crime Stoppers at (910) 483-8477.
