    How tragic. My heart goes out to his family. You think these shootings may happen in an acute care setting, ER or clinic where emotions often run high but not in a long term care setting! It will be a long healing process for those involved. God bless them all.

    You're right, Sissy. You just usually think you would see violence like that in a different setting, critical, ER, acute, ect. but violence like this is just everywhere and unfortunately going to just get worse.

    I still think about hearing those francit people calling 911, hearing them begging for help, and it just makes chills run down your spine.

    The incident happened around 10 a.m. on Sunday. Carthage Police were called to Pinelake Health and Rehabilitation Center in reference to a shooting.


    Police confirm six people are dead and three are injured. A police officer and the shooter are among the injured.


    Carthage Police Department Chief Chris McKenzie describes the shooter as an "adult male." He says the shooter walked into the facility around 10 a.m. McKenzie says the shooter was not a patient at Pinelake Health and Rehabilitation Center.
    No other information is being released at this time.
    Firsthealth Moore Regional Hospital tells Eyewitness News several people have been shot and transported to the hospital.
    The hospital is currently on lockdown. No one can enter or leave the Pinehurst facility. Gretchen Kelly with the hospital states the first shooting victim arrived by ambulance at 10:34 a.m.
    A witness says he saw the police officer airlifted from the scene sometime between 10:30 and 11 a.m.
    Multiple police units are on the scene surrounding the nursing home including the Moore County Sheriff's Department, Vass Police, Robbins Police and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.
