Police this weekend were trying to find out who was responsible for shots fired during the nighttime hours in the 2100 block of Mobile Drive at the mobile home village in the Cross Creek area on the north side of the city.
The police radio traffic at approximately 9 p.m. on Saturday said that a person was shot and that shots were continuing to be heard being fired.
Nash County 911 Director Bryant Fisher on Monday told the Telegram via email that a call came in from the police reporting a shooting, but that officials from Rocky Mount quickly advised someone had been shot at and not shot, so no ambulance was needed.
Prior to the report of gunfire in the 2100 block of Mobile, the police radio traffic said shots were being fired in the nearby 1300 block of Crusenberry Road.
The radio traffic said that the gunfire was coming from someone in a Chrysler, that the caller was advising the vehicle was by a mobile home facing the roadway and that the driver left in the direction of Fenner Road.
Later in the night, the radio traffic said that another call had come in about more shots being fired in the 2100 block of Mobile.
The radio traffic said that the gunfire was coming from someone in a Dodge Charger and that a Lexus had been hit by the gunfire.
Police spokesman Cpl. Ricky Jackson, in response to an email by the Telegram on Monday seeking additional information, referred to postings of two incidents on the Police to Citizen (P2C) online link of incidents.
One incident report said the police at 8:54 p.m. on Saturday received a report of a vehicle damaged by gunfire in the 1300 block of Crusenberry.
The incident report identified the victim as Tania Fuller.
The other incident report said the police at 7:31 a.m. on Sunday received a report of an occupied residence in the 2100 block of Tom’s Trail and a parked vehicle both having been struck by gunfire. The 2100 block of Tom’s also is in the mobile home village.
That incident report identified the victims as Semgha Marshall and Fuller.
This is not the first time the police have responded to gunfire breaking out in the 2100 block of Mobile this year.
Officers at approximately 4:10 p.m. on April 13 responded and discovered multiple shots were fired between two vehicles.
The vehicles were gone before the officers arrived, but there were homes and vehicles that sustained property damage.
