— A man shot at a Raleigh home early Tuesday has died, police said.

Police responding to a call found the man shot at a home in the 4400 block of Waterbury Road around 3:30 a.m. He was taken to WakeMed, where he later died. Police did not release more details, including the victim's name.

Residents said they didn't hear anything Monday night from the home, but they were unnerved by the shooting in the quiet, largely elderly neighborhood.

"You wonder if it's any of your friends or whatever, but you just don't know," resident Sylvia Finch said.

Residents said a man recently moved into the rental home but didn't interact with neighbors much. He worked on cars at the house and had a lot of people in out and out, they said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that solve crimes.

    section 8 housing draws a lower class of people,and thats not to say they are violent or criminals,just lower class and if thats not p.c. what it is is the truth period,just look at the neighborhood it is run down,not like it used to be,sorry if that upsets some but it is the truth.

    It is just the expected response from small people who wish to feel superior to those less fortunate then they are.

    Very dangerous in Raleigh lately and its becoming expected over the last weeks...Lots of shootings, murders and rapes. Glad they arrested the people associated with this crime. People say that Durham is bad but Raleigh will quickly be coming up the ranks if these numbers keep up. Everyone needs to remember the victims in this stuff if its in a bad area or not.....

    people who use section 8 as was stated earlier just need the assistance due to their income. they are no different from your neighbor who pays their mortgage/rent on their own but can't keep food in the house. furthermore, if you have a
    ny drug and violent convictions on your record, you will NOT get a voucher! please understand the program in which you're placing blame

    I love the bleeding hearts who have never lived near these properties and do not understand sec 8 usually brings in friends and relatives who are usually the criminals,one rental house in my area brought the who neighborhood into a huge police presence where there had never been one before.Setion 8 will actually pay a homeowner who pays an 800 a month mortgage 1350 a month,the older neighbors move out and it only takes a few of these turning into rentals to ruin the neighborhood. Ride down new hope church rd and green road and view for yourself what has happened to these one nice areas,noone maintains these rental home

    You do realize that Section 8 is available to any landlord right? All they have to say is that they will accept it, can be in any neighborhood.

    and just because it's section 8, doesn't mean it brings crime. i know people that have section 8, and they aren't in crime at all. they just needed the assistance to get a place, because of their income. we all have our own opinions, but at least get your facts straight before you open your mouth.

    hello,I have lived in the area and greaw up in the area,I remember when the entire brentwood area including stoneybrook was a really nice place to grow up and go to school.I remember a time when I wasn't afraid to let my mom go grocery shopping in mini city for fear of having her wallet stolen prom her pure,happend twice. The section 8 has engulfed the entire area and weather you choose to believe it or not, watch the news and look at the crime maps and look at the kids hanging out around the area in the evening.That was not around in the late 70s and even in the 1980s,you could walk down brentwood road and feel safe and secure in the entire community.That included either set of brentwood a

    actually, this neighborhood is a good one. the whole brentwood neighborhood is a great neighborhood. i grew up there. brentwood apts, might have gone downhill from when i was growing up, but unless you've lived in the neighborhood, you have no right talking about it.
    what does the section 8 have anything to do with this??? do we know for sure this is what the house was? and just because it's section 8, doesn't mean it brings crime. i know people that have section 8, and they aren't in crime at all. they just needed the assistance to get a place, because of their income.

    OnDaRoof/ Your comment is so right. Because of Section 8 you can't get away from crime. We all know the problem but it isn't PC to talk about it. My father used to say that PC was the enemy of the truth.
