FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – Police in North Carolina were investigating Sunday after two students were robbed by several gunmen in a dorm room at Fayetteville State University.
WRAL-TV reported four to six men with guns knocked on a dorm room door at around 2:00am local time, university spokesman Jeff Womble said. When the two students answered, a physical altercation ensued.
Shots were fired, damaging some furniture in the room, but no one was struck. The two students were injured during the altercation, Womble said.
One of the students was taken to a local hospital in unknown condition, and the other was treated at the scene.
The gunmen stole about $500 in cash, a debit card, a computer and clothes.
Fayetteville State University Police are investigating the incident with assistance from the Fayetteville Police Department.
It was not immediately known if the armed robbery was related to a shooting Saturday night at a restaurant near the Fayetteville campus.
A gunman entered the restaurant at around 7:00pm Saturday and fired four shots at customers before fleeing the scene. No one was injured.
No arrests have been made in either incident.
