Police said when they arrived at the scene they found 29-year-old Calvin Johnson with a gunshot wound.

Johnson told authorities he was in a driveway with two friends when a silver-colored sedan -- possibly a 2008 Nissan Altima -- drove up and someone inside fired several shots at them.

No one else was injured, but bullets struck a nearby house and a car.

Johnston was taken to Cape Fear Valley Hospital for treatment.

An hour later -- shortly before 9 p.m. -- police received a call about shots being fired in the 1900 block of Ireland Drive.

While canvassing the area for signs of a shooting, officers learned a gunshot victim had been taken to Cape Fear Valley Hospital. The victim, 19-year-old Bryce Lee, told officers that he was shot while walking to his car.

Public Information Officer Gavin MacRoberts said the shootings are under investigation and no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to contact detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department at (910)433-1856 or CrimeStoppers at (910)483-TIPS (8477).
