GARNER, N.C. (WNCN) – A man was shot and killed by a neighbor while the man was attacking a woman in a domestic-related incident in Garner on Sunday morning, police say.
Just before 7 a.m., police were called to a home in the 1800 block of Spring Drive, Garner Police said in a statement.
Officers found three people at the scene, two of those were injured.
A male victim, later identified as Randolph Maurice Davidson, 32, was shot multiple times and was transported to WakeMed where he later died, officials said.
A 26-year-old female victim at the scene suffered multiple stab wounds. Officials said Sunday night that she was in stable condition at WakeMed ICU after undergoing surgery for her injuries.
A second man, 26, who police say fired shots that killed Davidson, was also at the scene and was not injured.
Police said they believe a fight started inside the apartment at 1832 Spring Drive, which was rented by the female victim.
The fight then moved outside and into the apartment complex parking lot.
“A nearby resident …. heard the screaming and yelling from the assault and came outside his apartment to investigate,” police said.
“Upon observing Davidson assaulting (the woman), he fired several rounds from his personal handgun, striking Davidson several times. Davidson then ran back into the apartment where police later found him.”
The female victim was outside when officers arrived.
At this time, no charges have been filed against the man who fired the gunshots and he is not in custody, police said.
