1 person shot by Carolina Beach police officers

2 July 2022

— A person was shot by two Carolina Beach police officers on Friday night during the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

The person was shot at Doplin Lane Motel at 318 North Carolina Beach Avenue. They were transported to a local hospital with injuries and is currently receiving treatment.

The two officers involved in the shooting were not injured. They were placed on administrative leave and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation was called in to investigate, per protocol for all officer-involved shootings. 

Millions of people were expected to travel this weekend, with many of them headed to North Carolina’s coast. It’s unclear at this time if the person who was shot was a visitor or a Carolina Beach resident.

Authorities did not say if the person was armed or why they were responding to the area.

The Carolina Beach Police Department’s officer-involved shooting comes on the same day that a Fayetteville police officer shot and killed a woman near her home.
