FAYETTEVILLE (WTVD) -- Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says three deputies were hurt Wednesday morning in a shootout that left the suspect and two others dead, including a child.

It happened around 7:30 a.m. at the Crystal Springs Mobile Home Park in the 5100 block of New Moon Drive in Fayetteville - the area is off Crystal Springs Road between Cumberland and Camden roads.

The shootout was reportedly the result of a domestic dispute between a man and his grandfather. Witnesses said a man came out of the house, and opened fire. He then left to reload and came back and start shooting again.

Family members and police told ABC11 in Raleigh, NC that a grandfather and his 11-year-old grandson were shot inside the house and either died here, or on the way to the hospital.

Shots could be heard in the background on a witness' cell phone video provided to ABC11.

There was a chase, and sheriff's deputies shot and killed the gunman a few blocks the home where it all started.

ABC11 was told the gunman was dating of the child's mother.

A large area at the mobile home park was taped off as part of the crime scene, and a State Highway Patrol vehicle was seen with a shattered back window.

A neighbor, Danny McGirt, said he heard the gunshots from his home.

'It sounded like somebody was banging on the door and then I said 'No, that's gunshots,'' he said.

'One of the daughters or whatever, she just came out and said, 'My daddy's gone. My daddy's gone. My daddy's gone,'' said Al Williams.

'When they were behind him down there, it was like an Army going off down there in the woods,' said Archie Chavis.

Authorities tell ABC11 that one deputy who was shot in the back was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. Doctors were able to remove the bullet that was lodged in his back. He was last listed in stable condition.

Two other deputies were injured in the shooting.

One was grazed by a bullet. He was treated and released.

A third deputy suffered some bruising after a bullet struck his baton.

The sheriff's office has not released the deputies' names.
