HAVELOCK N.C. (WNCT) — Havelock police are investigating an early-morning shooting that left one man dead and another injured.
Police responded at 3:33 a.m. Saturday to 4 Kegs Nightclub in reference to a disturbance and loitering outside the business. Officials said the scene turned into a shooting incident where two men were found shot.
As police exited to examine the scene, another shot was fired by an unknown person. Due to a large number of people in the area and a very chaotic scene, police said they were unable to identify or arrest a suspect.
Both men were transported to a local hospital with gunshot wounds. One of the men died at the hospital while the other man had non-life-threatening injuries. The names of the victims were not released pending notification of next of kin.
A preliminary investigation indicated there were multiple shooters in the area. It is believed an unknown number of shooters may have left the area in a black Honda passenger vehicle. Police also believe the shooting was related to an earlier altercation, and there is no threat to the public.
