FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

One person was shot and a car was stolen Wednesday afternoon during the course of a robbery at a car wash in Fayetteville.

Police said an unknown black male entered the Carolina Clean car wash located at 1933 Pamalee Drive just before 6 p.m. and approached a customer. The suspect, armed with a handgun, demanded money from a customer of the car wash.
