— Two men were injured in separate shootings in Fayetteville about an hour apart Monday evening, police said.

First, Calvin Johnson, 29, was wounded in a drive-by shooting in the 7800 block of Adrian Drive shortly before 8 p.m., police said.

He and two friends were standing in a driveway when someone in a silver sedan opened fire, police said. Bullets struck Johnson, a house and a car. He was treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

Police said the car might have been a 2008 Nissan Altima.

About an hour later, Bryce Lee was shot while walking to his car in the 1900 block of Ireland Drive shortly before 9 p.m., police said. He was also treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

The shootings occurred about 9 miles away from each other.

Anyone with information about either shooting is asked to call Fayetteville police at 910-433-1856 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-8477. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that solve crimes.

It was the second time in two days that two shootings occurred within an hour of each other in Fayetteville.
