Fayetteville Police are investigating a Tuesday evening “person shot” call on Hood Avenue, but they say it appears there were no firearms involved.

According to reports, there may not have even been a gun involved.

Perhaps it was a stray BB, perhaps it was a stray bee, as in the insect, but police say they are still not sure what it was that hit the female complainant on the arm that evening a little bit before eight o’clock. Apparently, the woman called 911 because a car had passed by her house at the same time she felt the stinging impact on her arm as she was outside of her house. She reportedly thought it was possible someone from that vehicle could have been involved in shooting her with something like a BB gun.

Public Information Officer Mike Whitlow said the woman didn’t see any gun or any person in the car but just remembers a car had passed by.

Anyone with information can call Fayetteville Police at 770-461-4441.
