Police found the man, identified as 24-year-old Raleigh resident Xavian Jeremiah Graves, with apparent gunshot wounds in a stairwell of the City Studios Inn and Suites when they responded to a report of a man down at about 8 p.m., according to Raleigh police. He was taken to WakeMed, where he was declared dead, police said.

Police are investigating the case as a homicide.

Police said the crime was not random. A 911 caller described finding the victim bleeding in the stairwell. He said two men ran out of the stairwell as he started up, but did not get a good look at them.
