FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. (WNCN) — Fuquay-Varina police are investigating after a man was injured when shots were fired at a home from someone in a vehicle early on Tuesday, police said in a news release.

According to police, a person driving a black pickup truck fired a gun “in the direction of a residence in the 400-block of Longfellow Street” just after midnight.

A CBS 17 crew at the scene reported seeing at least 18 bullet holes in the side and front door area of the home.

The shooting resulted “in damage to property and a non-life threatening injury to an adult male.”

The victim’s aunt, Brenda McNeill, said she called him once she heard he had been shot.

“He was laughing. Telling me not to worry. He knows I worry about him,” McNeill said.

The man is being treated for his injury and is expected to be OK.

The home is equipped with cameras, McNeill said.

Neighbor Signora Parks lives next to the victim and said police interviewed her about the shooting.

“I heard several gunshots going off and woke me up and it scared me,” Parks said. “Cause nothing like this ever happened here before. I’ve been living here since 2008.”
