Fayetteville police say someone started shooting early Tuesday morning outside the DM's Sports and Spirits bar on U.S. 401 at Stacey Weaver Drive.One person was killed. Another man - who was inside the car when the bullets shattered the driver's side window - is at Cape Fear Medical Center.

A relative of the dead man told Eyewitness News that he was just 23-years-old. The relative - who did not want to be identified - said the young man had left the bar with a friend but later returned. After that, some kind of altercation broke out.

Police have not said if they've made any arrests.

Because of the investigation, police rerouted traffic in the area early Tuesday. All roads have since reopened.
