— A Fort Bragg soldier was shot and stabbed Tuesday night as three men and a woman stole his SUV, Fayetteville police said Wednesday.

Bradley Burkley, 36, gave a woman a ride to Schmidt Street in the Bonnie Doone neighborhood at about 8 p.m. Tuesday. When he stopped to let her out, she grabbed the keys out of the ignition and three men approached and demanded his wallet, police said.

Burkley threw the wallet on the ground, and one of the men shot him in the shoulder while a second stabbed him in the back, police said.

Burkley ran to a business on Bragg Boulevard, where someone called 911. He was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening wounds, police said.

The men and woman fled in Burkley's silver 2006 Honda CRV, police said. The vehicle has a Florida license, 834TSQ.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Fayetteville Police Department.
