Officers discovered 37-year-old David Washington around 8 p.m. at the intersection of Lamon Street near Ramsey Street. He had been shot. He was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Around 10 p.m., a Fayetteville police officer spotted Washington's Cadillac and tried to pull it over. The driver took off, and the chase ended in a mobile home park on Cattail Circle near the Sapona Road corridor.
