DEVELOPING: One dead, two others in hospital after Chadbourn shooting

CHADBOURN, NC (WWAY) — Witnesses say one of three people shot this morning in Chadbourn has died. One man, who was one of the first people to respond to the victims, says a 15-year-old girl, on whom he performed CPR, died at the scene.

There are few details at this point, but Chadbourn Police Chief Steven Shaw told WWAY the three victims were outside a house at 312 East 3rd Street as they got ready to go out shopping.

Police say the shot was fired from inside the home across the street at 313 East 3rd Street.

Earlier the The News Reporter of Whiteville reported that witnesses said two teenage girls were shot. The newspaper also said early reports indicated the shooting happened when a neighbor was cleaning a high-powered rifle and that police had detained someone.

We have a crew at the scene and will more information as it becomes available.
