Mount Olive Shooting Sends One To The Hospital

A quiet day in Mount Olive went sour Saturday afternoon when Mount Olive Police and Wayne County EMS Station 9 were dispatched to the scene of a shooting at 139 Cleveland Drive.  As police and EMS personnel arrived on the scene, they found a Hispanic male in his early twenties suffering from three gunshot wounds to the stomach area. EMS paramedics quickly loaded him up to rush him to UNC Wayne Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.

According to officials on the scene it appears to have been a drive-by shooting. Mount Olive police quickly taped off the area and call in the on-duty investigator to collect evidence on the scene.

The name of the person shot was not released due to the ongoing investigation. Mount Olive Police had one other person detained on the scene for questioning and was taken down to the police department.

    Sounds and looks like there is more to the story than just a drive by shooting. First off how does one get off three good shots from a car and hit center mass? Must have been a sniper, or very lucky…..and what about the Hispanic male with his hands in cuffs behind his back with blood on his shirt?

    Sourer…..? A quiet day turned SOURER? Really?
