GASTONIA, N.C. (WBTV) - A woman was seriously injured following an officer-involved shooting in Gaston County late Sunday night.
According to the Gastonia Police Department, officers were looking for Jarvis Lynn in the area of Gray Street around 11:30 p.m. A warrant states officers received a call about a noise disturbance in the area. Police said Lynn had a pistol at the time of the shooting.
That's when officers shot Lynn's sister, in an attempt to shoot Lynn, officials say.
Gaston County EMS said the woman was taken to CaroMont Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries but, police say, she has since been released from the hospital.
The N.C. State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the shooting.

Perhaps the sister looks like a dog?
Good thing his sister didn't die. They'd have charged him with murder.
When we leave California we will not be going to GASTONIA, N.C.
Need to go someplace where the police hit their target.
Did they hit him after she went down?
Dang! Can't believe ya beat me to it!
I’d bet serious money the sister was interfering with the arrest process.
Screeching and screaming at the cops: “HE DINDU NUFFIN. HE DINDU NUFFIN!”
Don’t you mean “peacefully” screeching and screaming? The article is definitely written with the intent to foment unrest.
“Perhaps the sister looks like a dog?”
Maybe she had a fur coat on?
This happened last night.
"Life-threatening injuries" must be different in that neck of the woods from what we have here.
“That’s when officers shot Lynn’s sister, in an attempt to shoot Lynn, officials say.”
Nice shooting officers! What would happen to us ordinary concealed carriers if we shot the wrong one?
Gastonia was it’s own insane place back in the 90’s when we lived in Tega Cay, in neighboring county. Mostly crazy white trash. Now it’s all inclusive.
Gastonia. Enuff said.
Gastonia, where Charlotte puts their ugly people.
