FAYETTEVILLE – According to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department, three people are dead after a lover’s quarrel turned deadly. The shooting incident took place on Wednesday night at a home on Cedar Creek Road near Fayetteville.
According to the police, the two victims of the shooter were identified as two relatives, Doris Henrietta Robinson, age 80, of the home on Cedar Creek Road where the shooting took place and Lewis Elwood Robinson, age 65 of another home on Cedar Creek Road. The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office identified Bobby Joe Bullard, age 30, of Graye Fryers Lane in Fayetteville as the shooter.
The Sheriff’s Office said the shooting was the result of a lover’s quarrel between Bullard and his girlfriend, who was related to the shooting victims.
“Bullard went to the elder Robinson’s home at around 10pm to confront his girlfriend, 25-year old Loretta Robinson,” said Sheriff’s spokesperson Debbie Smith in a statement to the media. “The elder Robinson refused to let Bullard in to her home as she feared for Loretta’s safety. Bullard became angry and began shooting his firearm, fatally wounding Loretta’s grandmother and uncle.”
According to Debbie Smith of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, Bullard then ran from the property and “fired a single shot to his head” and his body was found in the road in front of the home. According to police, the victims were found dead on the scene. ::
