FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Three people were killed and three deputies injured in a shootout after a domestic dispute at a mobile home park Wednesday, law enforcement officials said.
Deputies were called to the residence for the domestic dispute about 7 a.m., Cumberland County Sheriff Moose Butler told local media outlets. There, he said, gunfire was exchanged with one person, who was among the three killed.
Deputies did not immediately say whether the people died in the domestic dispute or in the shootout.
The names of those involved have not been released.
One of the injured deputies underwent surgery for gunshot wounds and was in stable condition, Butler said. A second was treated at the scene for a grazing wound. There were no details about the injury to the third officer.
It was unclear whether anyone was in custody. A spokeswoman for the sheriff's department did not immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press.
The State Bureau of Investigation was at the scene, standard procedure for officer-involved shootings.
Members of a forensics team were in the nearby woods looking for evidence.
