Pregnant veteran killed during Christmas event at Wilson club

Authorities say a pregnant U.S. Navy veteran was fatally shot in a North Carolina club during a Christmas event. Precious Vernetta Dyer was pronounced dead early Sunday morning at a music hall in Wilson.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office said the 29-year-old was an innocent patron and that there wasn’t evidence of her being involved in an altercation. Her mother, Tijuana Locus, told WRAL-TV she saw on Facebook that there was a shooting at the event. She said she believes her daughter was caught in the crossfire. Authorities and Dyer’s family are seeking help from the public to find out more information about the shooting.
