Multiple media outlets report 36-year-old Ventura Sanchez died Sunday of injuries suffered in a shooting Saturday at a mobile home park. Sanchez was found in a car and taken to Vidant Edgecombe Hospital, where he died.

Twenty-eight-year-old Ana Marlen Cruz-Franco was found dead in a home at the park. Earlier Saturday, 36-year-old George Lee Dickens Jr. was shot and killed at a barbershop.
