HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. -

A witness said four masked men forced their way into the Holly Springs home where one person was killed and a second person was injured Sunday night.

Police said two people were shot during an apparent robbery shortly before midnight at 1313 New Hill Road.

A witness, who asked not to be identified, told WNCN that four men in ski masks knocked on the door around 11 p.m., and then proceeded to push their way into the home.

The witness said one of the suspects forced him into a bathroom and stood over home with a flashlight while the others robbed 65-year-old Harold Evans, who lived at the home.

He said he heard two shots, and then one of the suspects yelled, "Let's go," to the suspect who pinned him in the bathroom.

The witness said he found Evans with a gunshot wound to the stomach, and 49-year-old Darin Lamont Greene lying face down in the living room with a gunshot to the chest.

He said Evans told him, "They shot me and took my money."

Holly Springs Police said Evans was treated for his injuries and released; but Greene, who was visiting from Apex, died as a result of his injuries.

Holly Springs Police Chief John Herring said the house, which is set back from the road, was not chosen at random. Herring said officers have apparently been to the house multiple times over a period of years.

The witness told WNCN that he had no idea why the men robbed Evans, and then shot both Evans and Greene.

Greene’s brother, Anthony Greene, said his brother’s shooting was probably "a situation of being in wrong spot at the wrong time," but the family still hopes the suspects are caught and the family can have closure.

"We can't imagine who'd do this to him in this manner -- to shoot him like that," Greene's niece, Yolanda Greene, said. "We don't know who would want to hurt him. ... He was a great guy, very personable. He had a lot of friends and we don't know who would want to hurt him in this manner."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Holly Springs Police Department at (919) 557-9111.
