FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A 17-year-old mother is dead and a 12-year-old boy is in the hospital after they were both shot in Fayetteville late Thursday afternoon.

Parker is listed critical condition at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.
Investigators said Johnson shot through the front window of the home several times during an altercation with two other men.
