CARY, N.C. (WNCN) – A woman was transported to the hospital after police said she was shot Thursday at her home on Piney Plains Road in Cary.
The investigation has been focused on a single house along the road which was the site of a large police presence just after noon.
Neighbors tell CBS 17 a married couple lives in that house and the husband was seen taking out the trash Thursday morning.

Deja Graham has lived on the Cary block for five years.
“It’s really peaceful, to see this kind of action come from the neighbors. It wasn’t expected,” Graham said.
Graham says she heard those gunshots from inside home from two doors down.
“There was about four or five gunshots,” recalled Graham. “We were watching a movie and it just took us by surprise. We didn’t really know what it was and then we came outside and we’ve seen a bunch of cop cars.”
Police have not revealed if they have any suspects, but neighbors say the woman who was shot lived with her husband and they mostly kept to themselves.
“It’s really close,” Graham said. “I would’ve never expected it because we’ve lived out here so long, there’s nothing that really took place previously so just to see it happen is kind of unexpected.”
There is a day care next door and worried parents have been picking up their kids throughout the afternoon.
No word yet on the woman’s condition.
