— Raleigh police are investigating a shooting that happened Monday afternoon about a block from Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School.

Initial reports indicate that 17-year-old Tevin Bunn was shot at the corner of Slippery Elm Drive and Creech Road, and ran to the school for help. Bunn is not a student, said Wake school system spokesman Greg Thomas.

He was taken to WakeMed with non life-threatening injuries, police said. Bunn was treated for his injuries and released early Tuesday, hospital officials said. 

Officers scoured the grounds on foot and with dogs to search for any possible suspects.

Classes had already been dismissed for the day, but a security guard on campus said the school was on lockdown for students and faculty who still might be on campus for extracurricular activities. The code yellow lockdown was lifted around 5:30 p.m.

Student Terrance Hannon said he and his friends heard the shots.

"(We) ran. I'm like, 'OK, we've got to get out of here. Something might happen,' so we turn back around and then we hear a car, like, it just pulls off," he said.

Ricky Blackwell, also a student, said there were a "whole bunch of gunshots."

"We heard a car and then we saw this guy, he was running this way, so we turned around and ran back that way," he said.

A woman living in a nearby neighborhood said she was outside raking her leaves around 3:30 p.m. when she saw two men in their late teens or early 20s standing at a stop sign at the end of a street. A forest green, older-model Buick pulled up, she said, and the driver got out with a gun and shot at both men twice. 

The victims ran away and the driver followed them, firing three more shots. The woman, who did not want to be identified for fear of her safety, said she called 911.

    "geosol, please define "assault rifle." You seem to like to use the term, do you know what it actually means? disgusted2010"

    It doesn't matter what city this happened in. What's important is the raapid escalation of drugs and drug-related crime. The inmates have taken over the asylum.

    I bet the shooter was from Durham...

    Let see how fast someone comes on here to dissect Raleigh, but not judge Raleigh on a whole for their crimes. As always, Raleigh is no differen than Durham, just biased opinions affect the perception. Now it will be this part of Raleigh, lets see Durham bashers. Don't throw stones in a glass house!!!

    geosol, please define "assault rifle." You seem to like to use the term, do you know what it actually means?

    Probably just another OWS protester gone wild

    So what kind of guns should our little right wing kids carry to stop these things from happening? How about some nice little assault rifles with 30 round magazines? Those would be cool in PE class. Don't want to get sent to the Principal's office because they're teaching biology in science class and not creationism? Pull out yer Glock and give that "librul" teacher what for!! Ah, just like Dodge City Kansas back in the good ole days, right wingers?

    Did Michelle Obama and Jill Biden Get Booed at a NASCAR Race Sunday?

    First Lady Michelle Obama and Second Lady Jill Biden visited NASCAR’s season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway Sunday to honor military troops and families, as well as to recognize new commitments by companies planning to hire and train veterans and military spouses.

    While there for a good cause, it sounds like the crowd booed the introduction of Obama and Biden over the loudspeaker before the two, with a veteran and his family, delivered the most famous words in NASCAR.

    ===============

    Too funny. What did they expect??? Next up? A NRA conference with Ted Nugent...

    FTA: "A woman living in a nearby neighborhood said she was outside raking her leaves around 3:30 p.m. when she saw two men in their late teens or early 20s standing at a stop sign at the end of a street."

    Ok that describes just about anybody!
    Poor journalism WRAL for leaving out the one fact that you do not dare print. Or are you giving us, the readers the benefit of the doubt that we will just know the missing detail you left out of the article.
