Goldsboro police say a total of six people were shot. One person has died and five others are in stable condition at UNC Health Wayne.

A woman at the scene said her 14-year-old niece was the one who was killed.

Some neighbors told WITN that loud screaming and yelling is all they could hear around 6:30 p.m. as they say a large group of kids was seen running in fear after police say shots rang out at a party.

Police haven’t confirmed whether or not any of the victims were from the group of kids that people say were running, but a neighbor who lives close to where it happened said they believe it was a pool party where the shooting happened.

Details about what led up to the shooting have not been released at this time.
