FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

Fayetteville police are searching for two men in the shooting death of a Special Forces soldier who was killed in his home.

Police responded to a report of a shooting just before 9 p.m. Monday in the 7000 block of Beaver Run Drive.

Police identified the soldier as 35-year-old Sean Wayne Wells. They say they don't believe the shooting was random because they think the family had some sort of relationship with the men.

The investigation revealed that at least two suspects were at the home during the incident and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police Chief Harold Medlock says investigators don't know if the two men were invited into the home or if they forced their way inside. Authorities say a woman and child inside the home were not hurt.

One of the men separated the woman and child from Wells. During the incident, Wells was shot and killed.

Officers say a car stolen from the home has been recovered. In addition to the stolen vehicle, the suspects also may have been operating a Dodge Dakota pickup truck. 

Anyone with information concerning the homicide or the identity of the suspects is asked to contact detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department at (910) 433-1856 or Crimestoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477).
