CLINTON, N.C. (AP) — Five people were found fatally shot at a southeast North Carolina home early Thursday, according to the local sheriff.
Sampson County Sheriff Jimmy Thornton said deputies were called to the home off Garland Highway outside Clinton shortly before 1 a.m. for a report of a homicide found five people dead with gunshot wounds, news outlets reported.
The emergency call came from someone who knows the homeowner, Thornton said. Investigators don’t have any information about a suspect and don’t know how the people who were killed knew each other, he said.
