— Fayetteville police are searching for a 28-year-old woman who went missing following a shooting Wednesday night.

Authorities said Ashley Davila, 29, and Heather Carter, 28, were at the Zip-N-Mart at 2413 Hope Mills Road when an unknown person began firing shots just before 4 a.m.

Davila was shot in the hand during the incident, but was able to drive away from the scene, police said.

Police said Carter was unable to get back into the car and it was unclear if she was injured.

Authorities said they are concerned for Carter’s safety and are asking for information about her whereabouts.

Carter is described as being white, 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. She has red hair, brown eyes and fair skin. Authorities said she has a tattoo of the word “clover” on her ankle, a tattoo of the letter “J” on her wrist and a tattoo of the name “Heather” on her shoulder.

Fayetteville police said they also need to speak with Davila, who was arrested for an unrelated crime after seeking treatment for her injuries. Authorities said she was processed at the Cumberland County Detention Center, where she posted bond and has failed to make contact with detectives.
