Smithfield, N.C. — An 18-year-old Clayton man who had been injured in a drive-by earlier this year was killed in a shooting in Smithfield early Thursday, police said.
Lt. R.K. Powell said that officers responding to calls about gunshots around 12:40 a.m. found Rasheive DaShawn Ray lying in the front yard of 413 Collier St. Ray was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound at the scene.
No arrests have been made.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Smithfield police detectives at 919-934-2121 or the Tip Line at 919-989-8835.
In March, Ray was injured when, he told police, a man in a passing car opened fire at him as he was walking in the 800 block of East Main Street in Clayton.
He was convicted as an accessory to a January 2009 shooting outside Clayton High School, in which no one was injured.
