A woman was fatally stabbed in a Fayetteville park, and police say it was not a random incident.

Fayetteville police said a woman was fatally stabbed during an altercation at College Lakes Park in the area of Rosehill Road and Tranquil Drive on Monday.

She was rushed to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center in critical condition, where she died from her injuries.

Police said officers responded to a report of a disturbance in the park at 3:32 p.m.

Three people became involved in a physical altercation with the victim, police said, and during the struggle, the woman was stabbed.



"Preliminary investigations have revealed this was not a random act. It appears there were at least four persons involved in this incident," said Fayetteville police Lt. Gary Womble.

The victim's name is being withheld pending notification of family members.

A homicide investigation is ongoing.

"That could have been me. That could have been another one of my neighbors. That could have been anybody," said resident Joy Moseley who lives right across the street from the park.



"I was thinking this neighborhood was safe and now you hear about this happening across the street. That's definitely going to change a lot for me," Moseley said.
