FAYETTEVILLE, NC — At 12:18 a.m. Sunday, Fayetteville Police Department officers were dispatched to Mikotos, located along the 7900 block of Raeford Road, in reference to a parking lot disturbance.
Several shots were fired at the vehicle over the phone.

Officers were able to locate a vehicle containing one of the men. The second man was at a Circle K near the scene of the incident. Both men were taken into custody.
The second suspect, detained at the beginning of the investigation, was found not to be involved in Hunt’s actions and released.
