Mass Shooting In Raleigh North Carolina Kills 5, Juvenile In Custody


(ABC 11) Raleigh police are expected to provide an update on the mass shooting that killed five people and injured three others in the eastern part of the city.

On Friday morning, officers were spotted searching a home near where the shooting took place.

One of those people killed Thursday afternoon was an off-duty police officer. The four others killed were civilians.

Three others were hospitalized, including a Raleigh K9 officer. A civilian victim is in critical condition as of late Thursday night. A K9 was also injured.

The suspected gunman, who is a juvenile male, was finally taken into custody at Old Milburnie Drive and McConnell Oliver Drive just after 9:30 p.m.

What happened?

Officers first responded around 5:13 an active shooting call near the Neuse River Greenway in the Hedingham neighborhood near Osprey Cove Drive and Bay Harbor Drive.

Police reportedly cornered the suspect in a barn off Buffaloe Road, a law enforcement source told ABC11.

Police would only say that the suspect was “contained” before tweeting Thursday night that the suspect was in custody.

Reaction to shooting

Many people are still just trying to process what all unfolded in that neighborhood.

ABC11 spoke with one neighbor who can’t believe what happened.

“Right now I’m just confused, you know? Quiet neighborhood. I ain’t seen so much violence like this in a minute, man. Just shocking, man, you know?” Lavarius Thompson said.

Another resident who spoke to ABC11 said the neighborhood was in shock.

“A lot of police activity, honestly I was actually in the house with my child, my oldest child, and we were hearing a lot of sirens and it was like, kind of alarming because it was more than a couple,” Victoria McGraw said. “The most alarming part had to be my youngest daughter, she was with her dad, and he just kept calling me, like what was going on, and he was seeing a flood of police officers coming in and that’s when I looked outside and there were police officers up and down the street.”
