Fayetteville police investigating two reports of gunshots

Posted February 16, 2011

— Fayetteville police were investigating two reports of gunshots Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities were notified shortly after 2 p.m. about someone firing from a black moving vehicle in the 2100 block of Ramsey Street.

After a short chase, police stopped the suspect vehicle on North Street, but the two people inside the car ran from officers, the Fayetteville Police Department said. One person was arrested.

A short time later, police received a report about shots fired inside a home at 108 Facility Drive about a block away.

While responding, they found a person dead inside from gunshot wounds. The victim was identified as 27-year-old Patrick Donte Lloyd of White Oak. 

It’s unclear if the two cases are related, and police could not immediately provide further details.

    And this is news because...?..? Where are the names of these people? A little more detail would help. And you found someone (don't know who) dead; from a gunshot wound. No comments from neighbors? Somebody always hears and sees something. A gunshot is not something that sounds like an old tractor backfiring. You gonna look out the window to see whats going on.

    We are a country of nosey people; and nosey people would have looked out the window (or just a little peep out the corner of the blinds).

    Awheywego2, I must have misread this story. I thought it was about Fayetteville. I didn't see any mention of Durham. Have you ever been to Durham? Did you get shot at while you were here?
    Didn't think so.

    Slow news day. Investigating gunshots would be a full time job in Durham.
