Three dead and one hospitalized in apparent domestic case in North Carolina

Three people are dead and a fourth person was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries in an apparent case of domestic violence, according to authorities in central North Carolina.

The Yadkin County Sheriff’s Office said it received a 911 call about 2:30 Sunday afternoon from a home on North Oak Ridge Church Road in Boonville but that the caller hung up.

Deputies forced their way into the house after seeing someone lying on the floor. They found one person dead and another with serious injuries.

Authorities also responded to a second location down the street in the parking lot of North Oak Ridge Baptist Church, where they found two people dead inside the suspect’s vehicle.

The names of the victims have not been released.

Sheriff Ricky Oliver said the victims were all related and that there is no danger to the community.
