The bullets went through the wall from the dispatch office into the reception area and two bullets went into the end wall. No one was at the office at the time.

GATEWAY Director Alan Stubbs received a call from the alarm company and met the police on the scene. No other damage was detected to the facility or the vehicles.

Robbery, assault

Three masked men assaulted a Goldsboro man Sunday morning while robbing him of $1,570 in cash.

Cesar Gustauo Lamar, 61, Goldleaf Drive, told deputies he was returning home from work around 4:30 Sunday morning when three people, all dressed in black and wearing masks, ran up to him and said they were police.

One suspect pointed a handgun at Lemar who starting fighting with them, one of whom said, "We need to kill him now." The suspects took Lamar's cell phone when he attempted to call 911. One suspect kicked Lamar in the face and reached into Lamar's pocket taking the money.

Lamar's wife, Claudina, heard the commotion and came outside. The suspects took her cell phone, too.

The suspects were last seen running towards Ryan Boulevard.
