MORRISVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- Morrisville police are investigating after three people were injured in a shooting Saturday.

Police responded to the intersection of Davis Drive and Morrisville Carpenter Road just before 7:30 p.m. When officers arrived, they found a dark-colored Audi in the roadway with three victims outside.

A 17-year-old and two other victims were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds.

Police said the suspect got away in a dark-colored sedan.

Monday, Morrisville Police Department had no updates to share in the shooting investigation.

"(My coworker and I) were on the patio when it happened, and we just heard, gunshots going off at first and weren't sure if that's what it was, but it was too many to not be. And then within like five minutes, cops, a whole bunch, ambulance, fire trucks (were on scene)," said Merrick Graf, who was working a shift at Woody's Sports Tavern and Grill, located off the intersection of the scene.

The shooting happened in the middle of dinner rush, with some customers eating on Woody's patio.

"We all kind of stopped what we were doing, and then people checked out and everyone left the patio. Some of them came inside, most of them just left, especially the people who had their kids, everyone just kind of left," said Graf.

At nearby Thai's Noodles, customers told a server about the shooting.

"This isn't really a place where that would really happen. It's a residential area. There's a lot going on. Davis Drive is somewhere we drive every day. So we were just really shocked," said Charlie Jeffries, who was working that night.

Jeffries, like Graf, said she's always felt safe here.

"I guess even in the safest of areas, things can always happen to people and you just always have to be careful with who's around you. Be wary of your surroundings and just look out for other people," Jeffries said.
