North Carolina authorities say a hospital was temporarily placed on lockdown after a shooting that resulted in a non-life-threatening wound to the victim.
Wayne County spokesman Joe Gillie said that authorities received a report of a shooting at Wayne UNC Health Care in Goldsboro around 8 p.m. Sunday night, prompting a lockdown that lasted for about an hour.
Gillie said in an email that the shooting was “domestic in nature” and that the lockdown was lifted shortly after 9 p.m.
The victim had a wound that wasn’t life-threatening, Gillie said. The suspect fled the scene, and authorities are searching for the person. Gillie said authorities know the suspect’s identity.
Gillie said no further details were available.
