BB gunshots rattle Wakefield residents
Posted May 3, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — Raleigh police are investigating three reports of BB gun shots in the Wakefield community after receiving numerous calls from concerned residents.
Neighbors say the shots have shattered windows. One of the reports came from the parking lot of a shopping center across the street from the Rex Wellness Center.
A woman, who did not want to be identified because she feared retaliation, took pictures of a box found in the parking lot that was packaging for a BB rifle.
“A lot of people are really nervous right now because who’s to say it’s not going to escalate, or someone that’s carrying a real gun isn’t to think (the BB gun shooters) are carrying a real gun,” the woman said.
Police said no arrests have been made and they are not sure the three incidents are related.
Anyone with information is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at (919) 834-4357 or to go to www.raleighcrimestoppers.org to report a tip online or by text message.
