On Tuesday, Sept. 12, around 3 p.m., the Southern Pines Police Department was called to the 500 block of S. Carlisle Street after shots were fired at a residence.
According to Southern Pines Police Chief Nick Polidori, another shots-fired call occurred at the same residence around 9 p.m. the same day.
“This is not a random act,” said Polidori about the ongoing investigation in an email to Sandhills Sentinel.
No one was injured, and no arrest has been made yet.
It is unclear if the shooting is related to a shooting in Aberdeen the following day, but it is not being ruled out.
An 11-year-old child was injured after 40 bullets were fired into an Aberdeen home on Wednesday. The shooting occurred in the area of Victory Lane.
“Approximately forty rounds, from three different caliber weapons, were fired into the residence,” said Aberdeen Police Department in a news release about the ongoing investigation.
The child was struck in the arm, treated at Moore Regional Hospital, and released.
This is the fifth Moore County shooting in 41 days that Sandhills Sentinel has reported on.
