Goldsboro police say it appears that a "disagreement amongst acquaintances" led to the shooting of Barbara Bandy on Tuesday, and are now seeking two suspects.

Ms. Bandy, 34, was reportedly in Pitt Memorial Hospital after being transferred there by emergency medical helicopter from Wayne Memorial Hospital.

Ms. Bandy was shot "multiple times" while in her car outside her home at 304 N. Leslie St., where she lives with Leonard Broadhurst, 50.

Police confirmed that Ms. Bandy is still at the Greenville-based Pitt Memorial Hospital, but a spokesman refused to release a condition or verify that Ms. Bandy was being treated there.

Goldsboro police spokesman Chad Calloway said he could confirm that Ms. Bandy was still alive, but said hospital officials had not released Ms. Bandy's condition to police.

Police now say they seek John Oscar Mumford of Whitted Court and Dwayne Jackson of North Leslie Street on one count each of attempted murder.

The department did not release the ages of the suspects.

The shooting took place Tues-day evening, and Ms. Bandy's home was also fired upon.

Inside the home during the shooting were Herman Hardy, 58, of North Claiborne Street and Jerry Spruill, 51, of Alabama Avenue, and Broadhurst, who lives at the home, police said.
