According to police, the incident happened after 2 p.m. near Cumberland Road and Owen Drive.

When officers arrived, they found one victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg and a multi-vehhicle incident.

Officials say the crash occurred after shots were fired.



Reports say a car at the residence where the shooting occurred was trying to back out which caused a chain reaction crash.

"I guess they were arguing or something, next thing I know, the guy was at the car hollering and bullets just started flying," said crash victim Brenda Hunt.

As a result of the incident, Hunt said there are three bullet holes in the back of her car and her windows were blown out.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office and the Fayetteville Police Department are working the incidents.

Three people were arrested in connection with this incident.
