— The brother-in-law of a man shot in an early-morning home invasion in Raleigh Monday says the injuries are serious and that the family is doing all it can to support him and his wife, who was sexually assaulted.

Meanwhile, Shabar Master Marshall, 16, one of the two brothers arrested in the case, appeared before a District Court judge to face charges of first-degree burglary, first-degree kidnapping, attempted murder and first-degree forcible sex offense.

He was in the Wake County jail Tuesday evening under a $5 million bond.

The other brother, Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall, 26, is expected to appear in court Wednesday. He was released Tuesday from a local hospital, where he was being treated for injuries he suffered in a high-speed chase following the shooting.

He is also being held under a $5 million bond on charges of first-degree burglary, first-degree kidnapping, attempted murder, attempted first-degree rape and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

According to a 911 call, the female victim called for help sometime after 3 a.m., reporting that she and her husband awoke to the men standing over their bed. They demanded money, she said, then sexually assaulted her before she was able to get away to get help.

As she ran, she said, she heard gunshots.

According to South Carolina court records, Jahaad Marshall has a criminal history that includes armed robbery and arson charges, dating back to 2003.

In one case, in September 2008, he was accused of holding a couple in Florence County, S.C., at gunpoint morning and stealing their cellphone, credit cards, money and car.

He was last released from prison there in 2010 and was on probation in North Carolina, according to North Carolina court records.

According to his Facebook page, he is originally from Brooklyn. He talks about dealing with people with "respect and peace" and serving "justice."

Court records show Shabar Marshall as having a Cary address, and his Facebook page says that he attended Garner High School.

    Where are the kids letters about this!
    When will we be told that like Benghazi this was all because of a disguisting video which sparked the violent demonstration from these two great americans!

    Just dip your 10 rounds in bacon grease!
    Some pork a day keeps the rag heads away and with great results!

    Nope. Mandatory Death Penalty for gun-related crimes.

    No excuses. No exceptions.

  • determined2win Jan 11, 2013

    These two will be labeled as 'troubled young men' by the Liberal media & the anti-Death Penalty crowd.

    That's fine, as you are entitled to your opinion. So am I.

    Instead of putting them in prison, let them live with a Liberal supporter willing to risk their own lives & those of their family members. Better yet, if there is overwhelming evidence that Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb DID the crime, the Court should rule for Instant Lethal Injection for the perps...

    I think people who commit violent crimes should be housed in a prison of their own with the only TV being the Weather Channel and Public TV and no others. No library of law books for them to read, only the "classics". If the prisoners want to riot, let them kill each other off.

    Putting people who are caught commiting a crime while using a gun in jail for 20 years and having jails be a little less "prisoner-friendly" might not deter that first time offender because most think they'll never get caught...BUT these two things coupled together might deter 2nd and 3rd offenses and that's half the battle in my opinion.

    Justice will probably be in short supply for these guys, like most others. There could never be enough.

    Such a devastating crime for this poor couple, sleeping in the sanctity of their home, and such horrible violence against them both. It could have been any of us...I'm disgusted by these horrible excuses for human beings that feel they have the right to take what is not theirs by force. They should be eliminated from society forever.

    Tougher sentencing is one approach and making prison like it was in the old days with chain gangs, no frills, no tv, no a/c etc...

    You actually think that is all we have to do to stop the violence? Really? We can prison as harsh as you want and bad guys are still going to steal guns from legal owners and use them. Fat lot of good someone being locked up does the vic of a crime. And if you actually think the threat of jail is a deterient to crime, my naiveity may pale in comparison to yours.

    Bull. You need to get your head out of the sand, The guns obtained illegally are usually stolen from legal owners. But I agree sentancing in violent crimes needs to match the severity of such crime. No question.
    Mr. Middle of the Road

    Were that statement to be true, Mr. Middle, then there would be no black market trade on guns. It's a well known fact that guns are moved, on a large scale, from states with easy purchase to states with strict laws. Are you naive enough to think all these saturday night specials are legally owned stolen weapons?
