Lakeview, N.C. — A family friend has established a fund to help with hospital bills for a Moore County couple injured Monday in a robbery and shooting.
Investigators said that late Monday, Angus Kelly drove up to the Exxon Short Stop Food Mart, at U.S. Highway 1 and Camp Easter Road in Lakeview, to see three men robbing his wife at gunpoint. He fired a shotgun through the window, striking one man in the face.
Investigators said the two other men used Grace Kelly as a shield, prompting an exchange of gunfire in which Angus Kelly was shot twice in the side and his wife in the arm.
Grace Kelly was treated and released from Moore Regional Hospital. Angus Kelly was in serious condition at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill late Tuesday.
Family friend Mark Metcalf posted information to Facebook Wednesday about an effort to help pay for the couple's medical care.
Donors can mailchecks – payable to the Vass Baptist Church, with "Grace and Gene" or "the Kellys" in the memo section – to Vass Baptist Church, c/o Rev Davis for the Kellys, 151 White Oak Lane, Cameron, N.C. 28326
