Wright was transported to the hospital where she remained in critical condition until she passed away Friday night.

In a 911 call Monday morning, a caller implores for emergency crews to come to the home on Golden Crest Drive.

“I heard a shot! Hurry up! Hurry up!,” the caller said.

Neighbors told CBS North Carolina that other than Price and Wright, multiple other people lived in the house, including kids and an elderly woman.

The neighbor also said that the family moved in about three or four months ago and that the children were always outside playing.

“My anxiety is kind of through the roof, because I always see stuff like this on TV, but it really hits home when it’s next to your home,” said next door neighbor Destini Murphy. “It’s a nice, quiet [neighborhood]…it’s just really a shock that this happened in this neighborhood.”

Officials on scene said that no children were injured in the shooting.

Police said the shooting appears to have been domestic and there is no threat to the public.
