Smithfield, N.C. — A woman in her 20s and her 8-year-old son were shot multiple times inside a Smithfield home Wednesday evening, police said.
Officers were dispatched to 38 Towbridge Drive shortly before 8 p.m. to investigate after neighbors reported hearing several gunshots.
The mother, whose name was not released, was taken to a local hospital, where she was listed in fair condition. The boy was in critical condition early Thursday.
Police have not offered a motive for the shooting, but did say it was not random.
Several persons of interest are being interviewed, police said.
