Man found shot at Raleigh apartment complex, police say

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Raleigh police are investigating a shooting at an apartment complex that occurred Friday morning.


UPDATE: Arrest made after man shot in the head at Raleigh apartment complex

Police were on scene at the Walnut Woods Apartments complex in the 3400 block of Middle Branch Road throughout the morning. According to police, officers were dispatched to the area at 8:15 a.m. in response to a report of a shooting.

Upon arrival, officers located an adult male who had been shot. He was transported to WakeMed.

Middle Branch Road was shut down as police investigated. Crime scene tape had closed off the apartment complex and the nearby road.

One witness, Tiffany Johnson, told CBS North Carolina that she heard as many as nine gunshots Friday morning.

“It was a lot of them rapidly like ‘pow, pow, pow,'” she said. “When I did look out the window that’s when I was hearing, ‘He’s shot, he’s shot.’ From what I saw, his head was slumped.”

Johnson, who has lived in the apartment complex for two years, said she told her daughter she couldn’t go outside because of the gunshots. She said she’s now on edge because several kids live in the neighborhood, including two of her own, and the gunshots rang out right around the time children are normally waiting at the bus stop.

“I am worried, I am concerned, I am saddened due to all the violence that’s taking place right now,” she said.

Two people were arrested at the scene on Friday morning, but police would not say if the arrests were made in connection with the shooting or not.

At least two cars at the apartment complex had their windows hit by bullets.

Police did not release the identity or condition of the man who was shot.
