Two Christmas Eve shootings in North Carolina left four people fatally shot in a home, and seven people injured at a party.

The four victims were murdered in their home on Saturday night. The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office identified the victims as Tammy Pearce, 54; Paul Pearce, 28; Selby Outland, 47; and Dominique Privette, 23.

The killings horrified neighbors and were astonished about how such violence could have transpired in their quiet community.

“It’s Christmas Eve. It’s shocking,” a neighbor told local TV station WTVD, while also noting that her mom knew one of the victims.

“What could’ve happened? What could’ve made a person so crazy to do something like that?” Michael Taylor, another neighbor, stated.

Authorities have not revealed any details regarding possible suspects or a motive.

In Rockingham County, seven individuals were shot and wounded during a Christmas Eve party after two men began shooting at the party, which was attended by close to 300 people.

Both suspects remain at large, according to Seargent Kevin Suthard, and a motive has not been established.

“They pulled out two handguns and began shooting into the crowd,” Sam Page, the Rockingham Sheriff, told  WRAL reported.

The shooters had their faces covered during the shooting and then fled in a speeding silver car driven by a woman, witnesses reported.

When deputies arrived just before 2:30 am, two victims were found injured inside — and others had already left.

Two additional victims were found at a corner restaurant, and another was four miles away in a middle school parking lot. One was inside the Stokes County Sheriff’s Office, and the last injured person made it to a hospital.

All seven victims were brought to area hospitals.
