Police say they were called around 4:30 a.m. to Paramount 3800 on Bostic Drive for a shooting. They found three guns and a dead man when they arrived.

One person died at the scene, according to police, and two others were taken to Vidant Medical Center with non-life-threatening gunshot injuries.

“We could see the body covered in a white sheet, lots of blood,” said Dylan Regling, who lives next door to where it happened.

“It’s never been this close to home. I mean this was like right outside my door,” he said.
