NORTH CAROLINA, USA — Two people were killed and two others were injured after an overnight shooting in North Carolina, authorities said Friday.

A third victim was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to her leg, police said in a statement. The fourth was treated for a gunshot wound to his foot.

The shooting was one of two in the city overnight.
